Learning Objectives

The objective of this course is to allow a correct choice of statistical tools both in descriptive statistics and in inferential one, and to provide the bases of elementary mathematical methods, useful in biomedical applications.

2. Inferential Statistics
2.1 General principles
2.2 Statistical distributions: Gaussian Normal, Standardized Gaussian Normal, Sample mean distribution, Student's t distribution
2.3 Significance Test: z-test, t-test
2.4 Confidence Intervals for means and proportions

3. Statistical topics in phase III Protocol
3.1 Protocols
3.2 Experimental design (between patients, within patients, factorial)
3.3 Randomization techniques
3.4 Sample size
3.5 Ad interim analyses

Mathematics
1. Fuctions
1.1 General priciples
1.2 Range

1.4 Derivatives
1.5 Function study

2. Integration
2.1 Properties of the integers
2.2 Kinds of Integers

2.3 Integration methods

Learning Achievements (Dublin Descriptors)

Knowledge and understanding: the student must know all the mathematical theory to be able to carry out the study of a function, as well as the notion of descriptive and inferential statistics with applications in the biomedical field.

Knowledge and comprehension skills applied: the student must be able to apply the mathematical rules to perform the study of a function, not to be able to perform statistical calculations of univariate samples.

Autonomy of judgment: the student must be able to independently assess the plausibility of the result of a calculation procedure, both mathematical and statistical.

Communication skills: the student must acquire a correct mathematical and statistical language.

Ability to learn: the student will be able to deepen specific arguments, not presented during the course, using the concepts learned .
