Objectives of Programme's Learning Outcomes
Learning Outcomes of UE
To be able to analyse correctly usual biological data in practice. This implies to master basic concepts in statistic and probability and to develop a potential to analyse a problem and to reformulate it in « statistical language », to apply statistical tools using a computer, and finally, to present results clearly and adequately in a scientific report.
Content of UE
Descriptive statistics; Mean; Median; Standard deviation; Variance; QQ plot; Boxplot; Histogram; Statistical population; Sampling; Inference; Probabilities; Statistic distribution; Central limit theorem; Confidence interval; Hypothesis test; Parametric and non parametric tests; Simple linear regression; Binomial, Poisson, Chi2, Normal, Student t and F distributions; Student ttest; One factor ANOVA; WilkoxonMannWithney test, KruskalWallis test; Correlation; Pearson; Spearman; R software.
Prior Experience
Bases in calculus, including logarithm and exponential, cartesian coordinate system and elementrary geometry in 2D and 3D.
Type of Assessment for UE in Q1
Q1 UE Assessment Comments
Test made of 20 questions all over the course for the theory. Timing: 2h, with pocket calculator. Evaluation of one of the reports made during the exercices for 2/3 of the T.P. evaluation note, plus a question about practical use of the software for 1/3 of the T.P. evaluation note. Final note is the arithmetic mean of thetheory and T.P. notes.
