This course has not yet been described...

## Main fields of studies for MISMaP

## Prerequisites (description)

## Learning outcomes

After completing the course student:

KNOWLEDGE

1. Knows what are the standards for estimating and presenting uncertainties of measurements accepted in natural sciences.

2. Knows the standards for describing experimental set-ups and presenting experimental results accepted in natural sciences.

SKILLS

1. Presents experimental results in the form of graphs or histograms.

2. Uses graphs and histograms to detect relations between measured quantities.

3. Estimates uncertainties of measurements.

4. Uses least-squares method to estimate parameters of linear relations between measured quantities.

5. Uses statistical tests: the 3σ test and the χ^{2}

test.

## Assessment criteria

Assessment form:

1. Positive notes for all laboratory reports.

2. Positive note for a test in solving typical, simple problems in data-analysis.

3. The final note is equal to the weighted average of notes for laboratory reports (weight 2/3) and of the note for the test (1/3).
