Rules for evaluation and completion of the course

Successful passing the credit test and submitting a suitable seminar paper.
Attendance at lectures is recommended but not checked. For students of the combined form, consultations are organized in the scope of lectures for students of the day form of study.
Consultations are also provided to students of daily study on demand.
An integral part of the teaching and the combined form of teaching is the e-learning course, divided into blocks within which students are available to support learning, including electronic textbooks, presentations, lectures and other supplementary materials.


The aim is to deepen and doplninění knowledge in the field of statistics, methods of descriptive statistics, results processing and statistical analysis methods. Introduction to the specific processing of results in analytical chemistry, environmental chemistry.
Students will acquire new knowledge and experience in the following areas:
1. Basic statistical methods of experimental data analysis, basic statistical analysis of analysis results.
2. Method of numerical processing of one-dimensional data, basics of descriptive statistics
3. Testing statistical hypotheses
4. Confirmatory analysis methods (eg confidence intervals, regression analysis, etc.) and exploration analyzes (eg cluster analysis, exploration factor analysis, PCA,
5. Fundamentals of multidimensional analysis
6. Practical use of acquired knowledge in processing of experimental data from selected thematic circuits in MS-Excel environment. or Statistics
