BIOSTATS 6001EX - Mathematical Background for Biostatistics
|Restriction:||Available to Grad Cert, Grad Dip, M Biostatistics, Master of Public Health, Master of Bioinformatics and Master of Biotechnology (Biomedical) students|
|Available for Study Abroad and Exchange:||No|
|Available for Non-Award Study:||Check with School|
|Assessment:||Assignments - functions and limits 20%, calculus 40%, linear algebra 40%|
On completion of this course students will be able to follow the mathematical demonstrations and proofs used in biostatistics at Master's degree level, and to understand the mathematics behind statistical methods introduced at that level. The intention is to allow students to concentrate on statistical concepts in subsequent courses, with an understanding of the mathematics employed. Content includes: basic algebra and analysis; exponential functions; calculus; series, limits, approximations and expansions; linear algebra; matrices and determinants and numerical methods.
