Course objectives
At the end of the course students should be able to:
- understand and explain the basic terms in calculus of probability and in descriptive statistics;
- apply the probability terms and the descriptive statistics terms to the description of economic events and data;
- use the terminology in the follow-up course of mathematical statistics.
Learning outcomes
After graduation of the course student should be able to:
- use and interpret functional and numeric characteristics within a framework of descriptive statistics
- describe types of variables with respect to measurement scale
- quantify randomness in elementary setting by probability
- use and properly interpret distributional function, probability function and density function
- determine in mathematical statistics popular distributions with respect to the application context

Teaching methods
Theoretical lectures; practical computer-aided seminar sessions;
Assessment methods
Lecture with a seminar
Test requirements:
1. Adequately active participation at seminars
2. Success at ROPOT tests
3. Success at progress test
4. Success at final test
Any copying, recording or leaking tests, use of unauthorized tools, aids and communication devices, or other disruptions of objectivity of exams (credit tests) will be considered non-compliance with the conditions for course completion as well as a severe violation of the study rules. Consequently, the teacher will finish the exam (credit test) by awarding grade "F" in the Information System, and the Dean will initiate disciplinary proceedings that may result in study termination.
