|Summary||The course builds on the material covered in MATH10095 Statistical Methodology, extending the statistical techniques described to generalised linear models.
Topics to be covered include :
- generalised linear models;
- analysis of deviance;
- exponential families; and
- generalised linear mixed models.

||Coursework 5%; Examination 95%
An assignment in mid-semester in which students identify and apply appropriate statistical models to data and interpret the corresponding results. This will be based on the material from Workshops/Classes.
||Students would get feedback from the tutors as part of the online workshops, in breakout rooms. I will ask students to prepare material before the classes. I would expect to use the breakout rooms in Zoom etc, but other possibilities will hopefully be available by January 2021. In addition for the assignment work students will be able to get feedback on their progress before submission, as well as mid-semester feedback on the marked work.
||Hours & Minutes

On completion of this course, the student will be able to:
- Demonstrate an understanding of generalised linear models and their application by solving unseen problems.
- Identify and apply appropriate statistical models to data and interpret the corresponding results.
- Use and discuss mixed effects and interpret them.
- Use R to fit generalised linear models to data.
