15.0 h + 15.0 h
Main themes
The main subjects to meet these objectives will be: - Construction and interpretation of graphs - Descriptive analysis of data (concept of sample, indicators of average and dispersion, interpretation of level of service ...) - Search for library materials, database consultation and construction of a thematic bibliography. This introduction to the processing and analysis of scientific data will be made from specific materials to EDPH or KINE.

At the end of this learning unit, the student is able to :

1 After this educational entity, the student will have sufficient knowledge to correctly interpret scientific indicators used in the formation of BA. Specifically, it correctly interpret graphical representations of data and key indicators of descriptive statistics.
