Course Syllabus

Our treatment made judicious use of spreadsheet software to explore statistical concepts. For continuous variables. We also studied the framework of probability so we could make quantitative sense of uncertain business situations. we explored multiple ways to describe these datasets. Throughout. Bernoulli. we take up the Exponential and Normal. we embraced a problem-based approach to understanding the material: the primary reason to pick up a tool or a technique was to solve a problem. we shall take up the Uniform.Statistics for Business II Shankar Venkatagiri Welcome to QM101. We will also learn how to simulate these variables. we shall employ the R statistical platform. numerically as well as visually.2x In Part 1 of our QM101 series. © All Rights Reserved. On the discrete end. we characterise real-world phenomena with constructs known as random variables. Indian Institute of Management Bangalore . Binomial and Poisson random variables. Wherever possible. we shall continue to use Excel as our spreadsheet tool to demonstrate various phenomena. In Part 2 of our QM101 series. These variables capture the uncertainty in the assumed values by attaching probabilities to them. A detailed tutorial spanning two weeks will get beginners started on this powerful software. Because we shall be examining datasets with over a million rows.
