An Introduction to Probability
MATH 231
Fall 2007
Section: 01  

This is the first course in a two-semester sequence and a prerequisite for the second course, MATH232. Both courses are devoted to understanding the ideas we use to treat random phenomena and not to computational proficiency, which can be learned in other places and is adequately treated using computer packages. The two basic concepts of this course are probability space and random variable, the most important idea being that of independence; and the two fundamental theorems are the law of large numbers and the central-limit theorem.
