General principles regarding design and analysis of experiments, replication, randomisation and blocking. Completely randomised designs, one-way analysis of variance. Randomised complete block design, two-way analysis of variance. Multiple comparisons, contrasts. Factorial designs, interactions. Unbalanced data in factorial designs. Hierarchical designs. Split-plot design. Fixed and random effects, variance components.
The students will learn to use fundamental statistical principles when they design experiments, to compare different groups or treatments, and to analyse data from such experiments by means of analysis of variance. They will also be able to use the knowledge of practical problems in their studies and in actual problems in the working life. By means of exercises with real problems and data, the students will show that they have achieved these goals.
Lectures and exercises with access to teacher.
