Supplier department: Department of Mathematics and Statistics - Departments - Faculty of Science **Prerequisites**(in Czech)- NOW (
**MAS01**Applied statistics I ) **Course Enrolment Limitations**- The course is only offered to the students of the study fields the course is directly associated with.

The capacity limit for the course is 20 student(s).

Current registration and enrolment status: enrolled:**0**/20, only registered:**4**/20 **fields of study / plans the course is directly associated with**- there are 6 fields of study the course is directly associated with, display
**Course objectives**- Statistical evaluation of results is an essential part of many anthropological researches. In the exercises the principles of basic statistical methods will be explained using examples from common practice. Students will be able to recognize situations where individual statistical methods can be used in practice, and to choose the most appropriate method under specific circumstances. They will exercise their computational skills necessary for statistical testing of hypotheses and simplifying the data file. Students will also learn to perform these basic statistical tests in R software.
**Learning outcomes**- After completing this course:

- student is able to perform exploratory data analysis;

- student controls simpler methods of inductive statistics;

- student can interpret outputs from statistical software. **Syllabus**- 1) Introduction to software R
- 2) Descriptive statistics, absolute frequency, relative frequency, conditional relative frequency
- 3) Numerical characteristics: sample mean, variance, standard deviation, median, quantiles, skewness, kurtosis, correlation coefficients
- 4) Discrete random variables, alternative distribution, binomial distribution, Poisson distribution
- 5) Continuous random variables, normal distribution, two-dimensional normal distribution
- 6) Estimation of parameter mu, sigma and p, confidence intervals
- 7) Introduction to hypotheses testing, normality tests, two-dimensional normality test, test of symmetry
- 8) One sample tests: t-test, F-test, test of parameter p, test of correlation coefficient
- 9) Two sample tests: two sample t-test, F-test, proportion test, test of two correlation coefficients
- 10) Nonparametric tests: sign test, Wilcoxon rank test, Spearman's test
- 11) Testing in contingency tables: contingency table, Pearson's chi-squared test, Fisher exact test, odds ratio test

**Teaching methods**- Practicals, two hours per week. Full-time teaching. This could be substituted by learning from educational videos and on-line consultations using MS Teams at the time of practicals, if epidemiological situation worsens.
**Assessment methods**- Attandance (two absences are allowed), two written tests (75% correct answers from each test is needed to pass). Absence could be substituted by doing and submitting the solution of the homework in terms of educational videos. This also will be applied to on-line scenario.
**Language of instruction**- Czech
**Further comments (probably available only in Czech)**- The course is taught annually.

The course is taught: every week.

General note: Předmět by si neměli zapisovat studenti matematických studijních oborů. **Listed among pre-requisites of other courses****MAS01**Applied statistics I
