The major part of this module is an individual project on some aspect of probability or statistical theory or applied statistics. It must be your own work in the sense that it gives an original account of the material, but it need not contain new mathematical results. The length should be the equivalent of between 3,500 and 7,000 words.
There will also be classes, which will cover the following:
- Introduction to project work; development of a project proposal.
- Statistical study skills, including use of literature, selection of appropriate methods of data analysis, selection of appropriate computer software.
- Report writing.
The project will be assessed primarily by a written report and, at the examiners' discretion, an oral examination, but also by a presentation of 20–30 minutes in duration, to be given towards the end of semester 6. The contribution of the presentation will be on a sliding scale that will never decrease the project mark by more than 10% or increase it by more than 20%, and provided you make a reasonable attempt at giving a presentation it will not decrease your project mark.
