Objectifs du cours

At the end of the course, the student should be able to:
-use a database and give an estimate for a population parameter (mean, proportion and sdandard deviation),
- compute confidence intervals for a mean or a proportion and perform statistical tests
- analyse and test the relationship between two qualitative or quantitative variables
- determine sample size for the mean and for the proportion
- compare the means of two independent populations
- according to the database, recognize what kind of confidence intervals and statistics tests should be performed
-integrate a group to do a project

Have greater awareness about ESRS topics such as: Capacity to interact and collaborate
with others effectively, including in teams, in the workplace, and in culturally or linguistically diverse
contexts, Ability to analyse and critically evaluate arguments, Ethical awareness (professional and personal) and academic integrity.

Méthodes pédagogiques

  • Project work
  • Interactive class


Students have 2 written evaluations that contain exercises, open questions and MCQ. The evaluations do not focus on the calculus and formula. The student have to explain their reasoning and and analyse the result. They also have to do a project for which students have to find a problematic, get a sample and then use all the concepts studied in class.
