Aims and outcomes
The student will learn the basic concepts of frequentist statistics and will be able to wield the tools learned in the course. Return a description of the knowledge, skills and abilities that the student must demonstrate that they have acquired at the end of the course, possibly referring to the Dublin descriptors.

Program
The frequentist approach to inference is most common in many areas of statistics. The aim of the course is to introduce the this approach to statistical parametric inference problems.
Type of didactic activities
Lectures for a total of 64 hours in the presence of the professor

Texts and materials
Giuseppe Cicchitelli. Statistica: principi e metodi 2/Ed., Pearson, 2012
Mood, Graybill e Boes. Introduction to the Theory of Statistics, McGraw Hill
Verification of learning skills
There is only a final exam, which ensures the acquisition of knowledge through a written test and an oral test. The written exam will have duration of two hours, without using notes or books, tables (where necessary for the conduct of the written test will be provided along with the exam text); the test consists of two exercises, divided in multiple points, and an application of theory. For each are awarded 12 points and for the question of theory 6 points, to be admitted to the oral test is necessary to achieve the minimum score of 18, of which at least 4 points for the question of theory. After the correction of the written exam, students who have achieved sufficiency are asked to support the oral examination. This is structured as follows:-a review of the written exam in which you explain the fixes, you receive any student details and decide whether to change the written exam; -an oral examination, in order to check the knowledge regarding the theory lesson and facing the capacity of synthesis of this knowledge. The oral exam provides 10 points in positive or in negative.
