ST3451: Applied Linear Statistical Methods I
Michaelmas Term 2017
Lecturer: Rozenn Dahyot
Timetable
 Monday 11am12 LB107

Foreword
5 ECTS module corresponds to about 100125 hours of study time. This includes the several hours of lectures (30+ for undersgrads, 20+ for postgrads) organised on campus that students have to attend. The new academic year structure is dense and good time management is essential.
Other sources of information are available to help you (e.g. online ressources such as webpages, videos, MOOCs, and books in TCD libraries). Be creative and independent to build up your skills!
Contacting the lecturer
A Discussion Forum is/will be opened online with Blackboard to post queries and is used as the primary tool for discussion on topics related to the course. Emails from students in my taught modules might be overlooked for logistic and time management reasons. If so, please ask questions during classes or flag this email to me directly at the end of the class.
Module content
Simple Linear Regression  Multiple Regression  Regression Diagnostics  Generalised Linear Models
References
There are a lot of books in the Library that are relevant to the course.
Lecturenotes
It is advised to take notes in class. Scans of hand written lecturer 's notes during classes are available on Blackboard. Case studies and R code are also available here.
