Aims of the Course: Participants...
We are going to omit (among other topics): descriptive statistics (important, read yourself, too time-consuming); Design of Experiments (important, too individual, too time-consuming, we touch some of it); Quality control
The way I teach: A script is online (below). Please print it out.
Therefore you are not going to lose time just copying from the blackboard or OHP. Instead, we are going to solve many
problems in class. For example, I will first motivate the term of "Mean" (or "Variance"), then give the definition, then I
solve 1 or 2 problems using this new statistical concept, then maybe one problem will be solved together in class, then you
have to solve some problems yourself. Finaly, at the end of the day there is time to solve additional exercises with me being
present in the class room. Teaching will be very interactively. I will omit almost all proofs!
The binomial distribution (a discrete random variable) and the normal distribution (a continuous random variable) will be treated broadly. We will present the theory using the binomial and normal random variables.
Please bring light pens (Leuchtstifte) in the following three colours to the course: Blue="Structure", Red="Danger" and Green="important, learn by heart".
