There are no prerequisites besides the main contents of Mathematics from high school.
The goal of the course is to introduce the basic tools of probability and statistics used to analyse data coming from either natural, experimental, social or economic phenomena. A special focus will be given to the correct use of these tools and the interpretation of the results by providing the student with the required theoretical background. Moreover, a part of the course will be dedicated to introduce and familiarize the student with the use of the most common computer tools for statistical analysis.
Topic 1. Probability.

Besides the mandatory student’s personal work, the course will have three distinguished types of activities: The core and main theoretical lessons, problem sessions, and practice in the computer lab. With the correct combination of these activities the specific skills will be achieved.
New material will be mainly introduced in lectures where the professor will explain the main theoretical results backing the tools that will be used throughout. These theoretical results will be complemented by exercises. More examples and exercises will be discussed during the problem sessions where the teacher will provide an oriented resolution of the proposed problems. Students are encouraged to attend the sessions having previously tried the exercises by themselves.
The main theoretical part together with typical exercises will have a partial evaluation halfway along the semester. This should provide the student with a measure of their progression.
There will be practice sessions with specialized computer software for statistical analysis. These sessions will have the double effect of introducing students to the typical procedures of data analysis, as well as providing lots of examples illustrating the subject.
The practical sessions will have an independent evaluation with assignments to hand in, possibly at the end of some of the sessions.
In all the evaluations, special attention will be given to the correctness and validity of the assertions and arguments used. These include vocabulary, mathematical correctness and clarity in writing.
*The proposed teaching methodology may experience some modifications depending on the restrictions to face-to-face activities enforced by health authorities.
Annotation: Within the schedule set by the centre or degree programme, 15 minutes ofoneclass will be reserved for students to evaluate their lecturers and their courses or modules through questionnaires.

Title | Weighting | Hours | ECTS | Learning Outcomes |
---|---|---|---|---|
First partial exam | 30% | 2 | 0.08 | 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 |
Hand in assignments | 30% | 20 | 0.8 | 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 8 |
Recovery exam | 70% | 5 | 0.2 | 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 8 |
Second partial exam | 40% | 3 | 0.12 | 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 8 |
The evaluation of theory and problems will consist of two partial exams. The first one, with a weight of 30% and the second one with a weight of 40%. For these evaluations there will be a second-chance exam at the end of the semester. The remaining 30% of the evaluation weight will come from the computer practices. This will be obtained from different assignments delivered throughout the course, for which there will not be a second chance evaluation.
In order to attend the recovery examination, students must have been previously evaluated in a series of activities whose weight equals at least two thirds of the total.
A weighted average of a minimum of 4 out of 10 is required in the partial exams or in their recovery. A minimum grade of 4 out of 10 is also required in the average grade of the practice assignments. If the minimum of each module is reached, the final grade is the weighted mean. Otherwise, the final grade is the minimum between the weighted means and 4.5 (out of 10).
Those who have not taken tests that add up to 50% of the course will be considered Non-Assessable.
In order to pass the course with honours, the final grade must be equal to or higher than 9 (out of 10). This will be given to students that, according to the criterion of the professor, have reached in a brilliant manner all the goals of the subject.
The dates for the assessments and delivery of assignments will be published in a dedicated webpage for the course.

One of the main tools for statistical analysis and development and which has gained a growing popularity in academia is the R language. The R project is a free software environment providing a large set of libraries and tools aimed at statistical computing and graphical representation of data.
The student will learn the basics of the R language though the use of the integrated development environment RStudio
