**Course Number:** MATH 4213/5213

**Course Title:** Mathematical Statistics II

**Hours Credit:** 3 hours

**Prerequisites:** MATH 4203 / 5203

**Course Description:** A continuation of MATH 4203,
including sampling distributions, estimation, hypothesis testing, regression,
analysis of variance and nonparametric tests.

**Topics:** Sampling distributions, various hypothesis testing scenarios
will be looked at. Introduction to concepts of efficiency, consistency,
sufficiency and robustness will be considered. Also regression and correlation
and simple design of experiments methods will be studied.

**Text***: Mathematical Statistics with Applications
(Seventh Edition)*

*Author: John E. Freund*

**Learning Outcomes:**

Upon
successful completion of this course, the students will be familiar with
various hypothesis testing scenarios. The knowledge of the sampling
distributions will help in understanding Design of Experiments. Students will
be able to apply regression techniques to various problems. Important concepts
in point estimation will also be covered.
