Class Objectives
/Class Outline
First half (lesson 1 to 8): The objectives are to broaden and deepen the fundamental knowledge and understanding of statistics for Analytical chemistry.
Second half (lesson 9 to 15): In the second half of the lecture, we will learn about basic principles and analysis methods of static/dynamic light scattering, X-ray scattering (SAXS), and neutron scattering (SANS). As an introduction, an overview of the colloidal dispersion system to which scattering method is applied, and brief explanations of the electromagnetic wave will be given. 
Class Schedule Lesson1: Types of error
Lesson2: Mean and standard deviation
