## Properties

• Semester hours: 2.0
• Credits: 3.0
• Type: UE Exercise
• Format: Presence

## Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to:

• Use basic counting techniques (multiplication rule, combinations, permutations) to compute probabilities.
• Compute conditional probabilities directly and using Bayes theorem, and check for independence of events.
• Work with discrete random variables. In particular, understand the Bernoulli, binomial, geometric and Poisson distributions.
• Work with continuous random variables. In particular, know the properties of uniform, normal and exponential distributions.
• Know what expectation and variance mean and compute them.
• Understand the law of large numbers and the central limit theorem.
• Compute and interpret descriptive statistics and plots.
• Compute confidence intervals for estimators.
• Carry out  and interpret hypothesis tests (t-tests, ANOVA, chi square-test, frequncies) as well as compute and interpret the p-value.
• Compute and interpret the correlation between two variables.
• Compute and interpret univariate linear regression models.
• Use the statistical software R to implement the statistical analysis methods covered in the course.

## Subject of course

• Probability theory: discrete and continuous random variables, expectation and variance, independence, correlation between two random variables, central limit theorem, law of large numbers
• Descriptive statistics: elementary statistics, numerical summaries, empirical distribution, graphical summaries (histograms, boxplots, scatterplots).
• Inferential statistics: confidence intervals, hypothesis testing (t-tests, ANOVA, chi square-tests, proportions), the p-value for these tests
• Linear regression (correlation, simple linear model, regression line).

Particular attention is paid to the use of statistical software R to implement the statistical analysis. For more details please see LV 107.254.

Detailed description and course plan as well as all announcements and material can be found in TUWEL.

## Teaching methods

Main concepts of the course will be presented in the lectures LV Nr. 107.254 and then will be practiced and deepened in the Exercise sessions LV Nr. 107.369. Exercise sessions will involve solving problems and the use of R for computation, simulation, and visualization. The focus is on methods of descriptive and inferential statistics, core concepts of probability theory, and implementation of the statistical analysis methods.

## Mode of examination

Immanent

For students of Informatics.

# Requirements for participation:

1. Registration in the course via the corresponding TISS page within the registration period.
2. Successful completion of STEOP.
3. Basic knowledge of linear Algebra and Calculus.

Course dates: On Tuesday 10.10.2023, 8:00 - 9:15 in zoom, a brief introduction to R will be given to all course participants. The meeting details will be available in TUWEL. The first exercise session is on Tuesday 17.10.2023 and it takes place in presence according to the given group plan.

Location: Hörsaal 14 - Groups 1, 4, 6, 7 and 10; Seminarraum AE U1-5 - Groups 2, 3, 5, 8 and 9; Zeichensaal 1 - Group 11; Sem.R.DB gelb. 03 -  Group 12; Seminarraum AE U1-4 - Group 13; Seminarraum AC 02-1 UIW- Group 14.

Academic integrity: Students in this course are expected to comply with the academic integrity code and to behave with academic honesty.  Academic dishonesty is defined as cheating of any kind, including misrepresenting one's own work, taking credit for the work of others without crediting them and without appropriate authorization, and the fabrication of information.

Plagiarism: All your submitted work should be result of your own thought and research. We take plagiarism seriously; students who are caught plagiarizing will fail the course.

Alternative in summer semester: The lecture & exercises (Statistics and Probability Theory) are offered both in the summer and winter semester.
