Abstract


The aim of this assignment is to introduce computer demonstrations on Statistical
applications for pupil and their teachers at an upper secondary school. Three
computer programs or movies, with Swedish text and comments have been made
which give interesting, exciting and pedagogical examples of how Statistics
can be applied in real life. The first program or movie, visualizes the Matlab
program EnerPlan written by Lars Arvastson and Magnus Haake. This Matlab
program is an important part of the doctoral theses in mathematical statistics,
by Lars Arvastson. It demonstrates the improvement made on the performance
of an existing district heating network using mathematical and statistical
models and methods in order to predict, simulate and to achieve more efficient
heating production and lower distribution cost.The second program is a movie
clip of the first one where only the most important parts dealing with
mathematical statistics models have been introduced.The third program is
a presentation, made for pupils at secondary School ("gymnasiet") and students
within the university in order to, call their attention and increase their
interest formathematical statistic subjects and courses given by the department.
It gives also apresentation of the possible job opportunities and the
labormarket for graduated students.
