This half-course introduces students to the basic statistical concepts which they may need to understand and use in the other courses they intend to study in their degree or diploma. The emphasis of the course is on the application of statistical methods in management, economics and the social sciences. Attention will focus on the interpretation of tables and results and the appropriate way to approach statistical problems. Treatment is at an elementary mathematical level. Ideas of probability, inference and multivariate analysis are introduced and are further developed in the half course 04b Statistics 2.
