The module in the quantitative method includes descriptive statistics, probability theory, stochastic variables and their distributions, sampling, estimation, hypothesis testing and comparisons of two populations, variance analysis, simple and multiple linear regression and logistic regression. Initially, the theories of these topics are taught, and afterwards students will practice their skills through exercises.
