Current Term

Statistics for Engineers - groups MI2.A, MI2.B, and teachers

Here you will find some notes I used in the lessons and solutions to the discussion problems. Note that we are solving many problems from the book - the solutions of which you can find at the end of the course book. They are therefore not included in the notes below.

• Basic probability: 

Find the notes for lesson 1 and 2 here. The notes include solutions to discussion problems for lesson 3.
We also solved the problems 302, 303, 307, 308, 310, 311, 316, and 317 from the book.

• Random variables: 

Find the notes for the discussion problems for lessons 4 and 5 here.
We solved problems 306, 403, 406, 410, 412, 415, 504, and 516 from the book.

• Estimators: 

Find some notes for lesson 6 here. The notes include solutions to the second discussion problem of this lesson.
We also solved problem 601 from the book.

• Confidence intervals: 

Find some notes for lesson 7 here. The notes include solutions to the second discussion problem of this lesson.

Some students asked me about how to use their calculators in order to calculate certain probabilities etc. I don't know much about calculators (I don't even have one), but here you can find some information and further links. (The webpage http://www.statistikkurs.se/ might be of general interest to you - it was created for the instance of the same course given last year.)
