To achieve the learning objectives of the subject, knowledge and skills are required that are supposed to be guaranteed in the training prior to access to the University. In particular, basic knowledge of calculus is necessary: elementary mathematical operations (powers, logarithms, exponentials, fractions...), elementary knowledge of differentiation and integration of real functions of real variables and fundamentals of graphic representation of functions.
The mathematical concepts that are studied in this subject provide an essential tool and constitute a precise language that is later used by most of the basic and advanced subjects of Chemical Engineering. Everything related to descriptive statistics, statistical inference, regression and correlation and all the methods studied in this subject appear in the study, synthesis, development, design, operation and optimization of industrial processes that produce physical, chemical and/or biochemicals in the materials treated by Chemical Engineering. Statistics is present in the planning and development of all experimental, academic and professional activities in Chemical Engineering.
Another important aspect of the Statistics subject is that it is a subject that helps to enhance the capacity for abstraction, rigor, analysis and synthesis that are characteristic of mathematics and necessary for any other scientific discipline.
