The course 'Statistics' is meant for
students in Chemistry, Molecular Life Sciences and (Natural)
Science(s). It treats, perhaps not surprisingly, the basics of
statistics. The subjects in this
course are indispensible for all empirical scientists. This set of
web-based exercises is set up with the aim to provide an easy way to
practice the concepts without too much tedious computation; that is
left to the computer.
The course takes seven weeks; every week one of the menu items
(except 'Background') is treated. The last week, both 'Experimental Design' and 'More experimental designs' are treated.
The titles of the menu items reflect the chapters in the reader. In each case, the theory is reviewed
briefly and a number of questions is shown on the current
subject. Consult the reader (see Blackboard) if anything is
unclear. After having
studied all subjects, a set of mixed exercises can be done as a
preparation for the exam. The course is concluded by some (hopefully
inspiring) examples of applications of simple and not-so-simple
statistics in the natural sciences. Exams from the last couple of
years are available as well.
