Upon completion of this subject, students will be able to:
- analyse data, and interpret and communicate results and conclusions, from a wide range of experimental designs;
- fit and interpret more complex statistical models, including the linear model; and
- build on and broaden their theoretical and technical knowledge of statistical terminology, concepts and methodology, which will enable them to read and critically appraise scientific literature with some confidence.
- Topics will be available to enrolled students in the subjects Learning Management System site approximately one week prior to the commencement of the teaching period.
You must either have successfully completed the following subject(s) before starting this subject, or currently be enrolled in the following subject(s) in a prior study period; or enrol in the following subject(s) to study prior to this subject:
- UNE-SCI210-Introduction to Scientific Programming
- UNE-STAT100-Introduction to Statistical Modelling
- UNE-AMTH250-Introduction to Programming in The Sciences
Please note that your enrolment in this subject is conditional on successful completion of these prerequisite subject(s). If you study the prerequisite subject(s) in the study period immediately prior to studying this subject, your result for the prerequisite subject(s) will not be finalised prior to the close of enrolment. In this situation, should you not complete your prerequisite subject(s) successfully you should not continue with your enrolment in this subject. If you are currently enrolled in the prerequisite subject(s) and believe you may not complete these all successfully, it is your responsibility to reschedule your study of this subject to give you time to re-attempt the prerequisite subject(s)
Candidature in the Diploma in Information Technology or the Diploma in Science. To enrol in this subject you will need to pass the Prerequisite/s. Please note as UNE results are released after the close of enrolment date, your enrolment into this subject will be withdrawn if you do not pass the prerequisite subject/s.
- Equipment requirements - Headphones or speakers (required to listen to lectures and other media) Headset, including microphone (highly recommended) Webcam (may be required for participation in virtual classrooms and/or media presentations).

- Travel requirements - Travel may be required to attend the Final Examination for this subject.
- Other requirements -
Textbook information is not available until approximately 8 weeks prior to the commencement of the Teaching period.
Students are expected to purchase prescribed material.
Textbook requirements may vary from one teaching period to the next.
Are you interested in developing and applying statistical models for the natural or social sciences? Do you want to learn more about the principles of designing a data collection? This subject will help you develop the core skills and knowledge needed for experimental designs and applied statistical models that are used in many scientific fields. Studying this subject, you will learn to develop and analyse various types of linear regression models which are the foundation of many statistical analyses. You will also explore some common experimental designs such as factorial design and randomised block design. Focusing on both the theoretical and technical aspects of key statistical concepts, topics include multiple linear regression with quantitative and qualitative explanatory variables, polynomial regression and generalised linear models.
