Exercises are devoted to independent statistical calculations. Practical classes include:
• Creating distribution series and graphical representation of the distribution series structure (histograms and polygons)
• Calculation of basic statistics from distribution series in the form of central trend measures and dispersion measures. (mean and standard deviation by the method of accumulation and deviations, coefficients of variation)
• Analysis of sample distribution, measures of distribution asymmetry
• Induction statistics, including: stages of scientific research, principles of formulating scientific goals, statistical hypotheses, verification of hypotheses, Type I and Type II errors.
• Parametric and nonparametric statistical tests (including student's t-tests, ANOVA, fraction tests)
• regression analysis,
• Chi2 test,
In addition to knowledge about the use of these methods, emphasis will also be placed on the issue of conditions in which analyzes of a given type are allowed to be performed. Emphasis is also placed on the interpretation of results and methods of presenting the results of statistical analyzes.
During the course, the student becomes familiar with statistical inference using appropriate statistical tests (Student's t-test, one-way analysis of variance, Mann-Whitney test, Wilcoxon, Kruskal Walis, correlation and straight line regression, Chi 2 test). Performs simple research tasks or expert opinions typical of biological sciences under the supervision of a scientific supervisor. Uses statistical methods at the basic level to describe phenomena and analyze data. Is able to analyze statistical information from various sources and present correct conclusions. He can make the correct hypotheses based on logical premises. Uses basic statistical methods and computational techniques. Can carry out statistical tests. Correctly interprets empirical data and draws appropriate conclusions.

Is able to analyze information from various sources and present correct conclusions
In terms of social competence:
The student consistently applies and disseminates the principle of strict, based on empirical foundations, interpretation of biological phenomena and processes.
Demonstrates criticism in receiving information related to biological sciences from scientific literature, the Internet, and especially available in mass media.
Can be self-critical and draw conclusions based on an analysis of their skills, attitudes and actions
Assessment criteria
Completion of exercises for the grade, colloquium / practical test.
Learning outcomes are verified in the form of colloquia carried out during classes.
In order to pass the course, students should correctly solve statistical sentences using appropriate formulas. The final grade of the exercises is the result of partial tests checking the knowledge of the exercises. The exam is in the form of written task solving.
