The rules of distribution one-dimensional random variable. Distribution of discrete random variable. Distribution of continuous random variable General concepts of point and interval estimation. Statistical hypothesis testing - parametric tests. Nonparametric tests. Exploratory analysis of one dimensional data. Analysis of variance. Dependencies of random variables - functional, regression, correlation, tightness of dependence. Simple linear regression and multiple linear regressions. Basic concept of time- series, description and analyse. Design of Experiments. Principles of statistical quality control.

Learning activities and teaching methods
Monologic (reading, lecture, briefing), Dialogic (discussion, interview, brainstorming), Work with text (with textbook, with book), Skills training, Graphic and art activities
Learning outcomes
The aim of this subject is to provide students with theoretical and mathematical principles needful for orientation in commonly used statistical characteristics. Emphasis is mainly put on practical skills, i.e. on encompassment of data processing using Excel and on subsequent interpretation and presentation of results.
Student is after fulfillment of this subject able to orientate himself properly in basic statistical characteristics and to use appropriate basic statistical methods of data processing mainly using Excel. He is competent to design and to carry out appropriate ways to get data, their processing, analyze, interpretation and presentation of results considering practice in chemical enterprise or laboratory. Fulfillment of this subject is fundamental prerequisite for study of consequential subject Economic
Prerequisites
Knowledge in mathematics on high school level is needed for study of the subject.

Assessment methods and criteria
Oral examination, Written examination, Home assignment evaluation, Student performance assessment, Discussion

Exam has two parts - written with computer and oral one. Level of acquired knowledge, approaches, as well as application skills, are examined. The knowledge are screened during semester through examination paper done on computer and its results are counted in total classification.
