Statistical Methods with Excel

In this course students will learn important statistical methods, namely estimations, construction of confidence intervals, hypothesis testing and several types of regressions.

During the course, we will use the graphical abilities and the built in statistical functions of Microsoft Excel to make figures about and calculations with data arising from real life problems or simulations as well. (The lectures will be held in a computer laboratory. Having some experience with Excel is an advantage but not a prerequisite for the course.)

We will take Chapters 6-9 and 12-13 of the text-book.
