Aims/Description: The overall aim of the course is to give students practice in the various stages of dealing with a real problem: objective definition, preliminary examination of data, modelling, analysis, computation, interpretation and communication of results. It could be said that while other courses teach how to do statistics, this teaches how to be a statistician. There will be a series of projects and other exercises directed towards this aim. Projects will be assessed, but other exercises will not.
