It is recommended to have taken the subject of probabilistic and statistical descriptions; notions of algebra and calculus.

The course to introduce the student to learning and stattiscal analysis using the following techniques:

1.Basic topics of statistical inference and analysis of variance of a pathway.

2.Basic elements involved in statistical analysis of the simple and multilinear regression models.

3.Tools involved in statistical analysis (estimation of paramters, descomposition of variability , ANOVA table, contrasts) of the desings by complete and non complete randomized blocks.

4.The subject also aims to familiarize students with the use of software R.

- Analyse data efficiently for the development of smart systems with the capacity for autonomous learning and/or data mining.
- Develop critical thinking and reasoning and know how to communicate it effectively in both your own language and in English.
- Search, select and manage information and knowledge responsibly.
- Students must be capable of collecting and interpreting relevant data (usually within their area of study) in order to make statements that reflect social, scientific or ethical relevant issues.
- Use techniques of probability and statistics to analyse and model complex phenomena and solve optimisation problems.

- Correctly interpret the result of a test or statistical model for the population analysis of experimental data or the validation of an algorithm.
- Design and implement an integrated strategy of statistical techniques and artificial intelligence for the development of descriptive and predictive systems.
- Develop critical thinking and reasoning and know how to communicate it effectively in both your own language and in English.
- Search, select and manage information and knowledge responsibly.
- Students must be capable of collecting and interpreting relevant data (usually within their area of study) in order to make statements that reflect social, scientific or ethical relevant issues.

The subject is structured based on theory classes, problems and practices. Theory classes will introduce the concepts and techniques described in the course syllabus. you can continue to use the recommended basic bibliography. Problem classes aim to work on and understand statistical concepts. The lists of problems and, once they have been solved in class, also the solutions will be posted on the Virtual Campus. The aim of the practices is the use of statistical software R, to obtain and clarify the results of the procedures that have been introduced in the classes of theory and problems. The statement of each practice will be posted on the Virtual Campus in advance.

**Annotation**: Within the schedule set by the centre or degree programme, 15 minutes of one class will be reserved for students to evaluate their lecturers and their courses or modules through questionnaires.

Title | Weighting | Hours | ECTS | Learning Outcomes |
---|---|---|---|---|

Continuous evaluation and practices | 15% | 30 | 1.2 | 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 |

Final exam | 40% | 2 | 0.08 | 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 |

Midterm exam | 30% | 2 | 0.08 | 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 |

Problem assessment | 15% | 2 | 0.08 | 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 |

The ** **assessment of the subject will consist of:

1. Midterm exam **(30%)**

2. Final exam **(40%)**

3. Exam of problems **(15%)**

4. Continuous assessment and practices **(15%)**

None of the Assessment activities removes material for the final exam. The final grade will be the weighted average of the activities. No minimum grade policy is set for any activity. If applying the weights mentioned above the student's grade is 5 or higher, the subject is considered passed and this may not be the subject of a new assessment. A student is considered to be "Not assessed" in the subject as long as there is no participation in any of the assessment activities. Therefore, it is considered that a student who performs some component of Continuous Assessment can no longer qualify for an “Unassessed”.

**Recovery Process** "To participate in the Recovery Process, students must have previously been assessed in a set of activities that represent a minimum of two thirds of the total grade of the subject or module." Section 3 of Article 112b. Recovery (UAB Academic Regulations). Students must have obtained an average grade of the subject between 4.0 and 4.9. The date of this test will be scheduled in the calendar of examinations of the Faculty. The student who presents and passes it will pass the subject with a grade of 5. Otherwise he will keep the same grade.

**This course does not include a single evaluation system**

**Irregularities in the Evaluation**

Without prejudice to Other disciplinary measures deemed appropriate, and in ACCORDANCE with current academic regulations, "in the event that the student commits any Irregularities that may lead to a significant variation in the rating of an assessment actor, he / she will be graded with an 0 this actor of evaluation, independently of the disciplinary Process that can instruct. in case that produce Several Irregularities in the Acts of evaluation a same subject, the final qualification of this subject will be 0 ". Section 10 of Article 116. Results of the Evaluation. (UAB Academic Regulations) The Proposed Evaluation may undergo some modification depending on the restrictions on attendance imposed by the health authorities.
