Abstract

Statistics is dictated in careers such as Engineering, Bio-engineering, Veterinary, Economic Sciences. It is often observed that students present difficulties when trying to apply contents of Statistics to real problems. We proposed to incorporate an integrative work from a real database during the course, in which the students must analyze topics already developed in class to carry out an analysis whose stages are parts of a whole in an application problem.

As in the digital era is necessary the insertion of university culture, the task is to provide students with a first contact with different software available for data analysis.

It is intended to enrich the formative and cognitive process of the students, allowing them to acquire skills inherent to statistical reasoning whith critical spirit.
