Statistics for Analytical Chemists

1 Day

An introductory course to the fundamental of statistics, relevant to all professionals in the analytical sciences, life sciences and related fields.

This course comprehensively covers the basic concepts and methods of statistics with applications in the field of analytical sciences. During this course, we will demonstrate methods of exploring, organising, and presenting data, and introduce the fundamentals of probability.

Explore the foundations of statistical inference, including the concepts of parameters and estimates. Find out more about the use of statistical measures, confidence intervals, and hypothesis tests.
