### Abstract

This is a course material for an introductory course in Probability and Statistics for Engineering and Management. It is part of some course notes for my courses in Spanish on that subject. The draft of the book is Apuntes de Probabilidad y Estadística para Ingeniería y Administración (Notes for Probability and Statistic for Engineering and Management) and this part is Conceptos básicos de estadística (Basic Concepts in Statistics). Statistics is an analytical scientific method used in the social and natural sciences. Its main use is the statistic inference. This is, from the information of a simple, we infer values of the universe where it comes from.

In this chapter we study the basic statistical concepts and the descriptive statistics tools. We present the most common probability distribution functions and some test of hypothesis. We present some typical test for non-parametric statistics. Random sampling is presented in a very simple way. All these methods are studied using intensively the spreadsheet.

Keywords: Statistics, non parametric statistics, descriptive statistics
