Applied Statistics for Chemists

What You Will Learn
Learn how to apply the science of statistics to laboratory data and chemical problems. Discover the tools needed to confidently compare results from different labs, and determine if an instrument or analysis is running within specification. Learn what the terms significantly different, undetectable, indistinguishable, and adequately sampled mean. Obtain an understanding of fundamental statistical concepts, and the reasoning behind the application of these concepts.

Who Should Attend
Chemists, technicians, managers, engineers, anyone responsible for using statistical techniques to determine the quality and reliability of analytical data, analytical methods, or manufactured products. While the use of heavy mathematics will be avoided, a knowledge of elementary algebra would be very useful.

Probability Theory
Degrees of Freedom vs. Populations of Samples
Parameters and Statistics
Sampling Distributions
Design of Experiments
Hypothesis Testing
Analysis of Variance
Detection Limits
Quality Control
Interlaboratory Comparisons
Product and System Reliability
