Day 1 of 2  

Importing and Organizing Data  Objective: Understand the import methods and data types available in MATLAB and Statistics Toolbox to bring data into MATLAB and organize it for analysis. Perform common tasks, such as merging data and dealing with missing data.

Exploring Data  Objective: Perform basic statistical investigation of a data set, including visualization and calculation of summary statistics.

Distributions  Objective: Use the functionality in Statistics Toolbox to investigate different probability distributions and to fit distributions to a data set.

Hypothesis Tests  Objective: Use Statistics Toolbox to determine how likely an assertion about a data set is. Apply hypothesis tests for common uses, such as comparing two distributions and determining confidence intervals for a sample mean.

Day 2 of 2  

Analysis of Variance  Objective: Use Statistics Toolbox functions to compare the sample means of multiple groups and to find statistically significant differences between groups.

Regression  Objective: Perform predictive modeling by fitting linear and nonlinear models to a data set. Explore techniques for improving model quality.

Working with Multiple Dimensions  Objective: Become familiar with techniques for reducing the dimensionality of a data set, and perform classification of categorical responses.

Random Numbers and Simulation  Objective: Use random numbers to evaluate the uncertainty or sensitivity of a model, or perform simulations. Generate random numbers from various distributions, and manage the MATLAB random number generation algorithms.
