An Introduction to Probability

MATH 231
Fall 2020
Section: 01  
Course Cluster and Certificates: Applied Data Science Certificate, Integrated Design, Engineering & Applied Science Minor

This course teaches the basic theory of probability. Although the notions are simple and the mathematics involved require only a basic knowledge of the ideas of differential and integral calculus, a certain degree of mathematical maturity is necessary. The fundamental concepts to be studied are probability spaces and random variables, the most important ideas being conditional probability and independence. The main theorems we will study are the law of large numbers and the central limit theorem.
