 Department had an education system called “Active Learning System” between 2000-2010. In this system, statistics courses for undergraduate students are studied in two-weeks modules based on scenarios within groups of 9 students and one instructor. Below are the some of the modules that I took part as an instructor or a  module supervisor:

  • Categorical Data Analysis
  • Nonparametric  Statistical Methods
  • Simple Linear Regression
  • Variable Selection and Modeling
  • Time Series Analysis
  • Multivariate Data Analysis
  • Multiple Linear Regression
  • Hypothesis Testing
  • Sampling MethodS
  • One-Way ANOVA
  • Design of Experiments

Since 2010, we are back at classical education system. Below are the classes I teach at undergraduate and graduate levels:

Undergaduate level:

  •  Probability and Statistics-I, Probability and Statistics-II (2010-2012)
  • Technical English-I-II(2010-2011)
  • Categorical Data Analysis(2011-2012, 2012-2013  Spring semester)
  • Regression Analysis (2012-2013, Fall semester)

Graduate level:

  •  Data Analysis (Service Course forInstituteofHealthSciences).(2005-Spring)
  • Non-parametric Statistics – (2006-Spring)
  • Categorical Data Analysis – (2007, 2008, 2010-Fall).
  • Statistical Software in data Analysis – ( 2007-Fall)
  • Alternative Regression Methods– (2009, 2010-Spring)
  • Advanced Statistical Inference-I – (2012-2013, Fall semester)

 I also supervised below projects for group of junior and senior students.

Graduation Projects for senior class students :
