MATH 20 Probability

Our capacity to fathom the world around us hinges on our ability to understand quantities which are inherently unpredictable. Therefore, in order to gain more accurate mathematical models of the natural world we must incorporate probability into the mix. This course will serve as an introductions to the foundations of probability theory. Topics covered will include some of the following: (discrete and continuous)random variable, random vectors, multivariate distributions, expectations; independence, conditioning, conditional distributions and expectations; strong law of large numbers and the central limit theorem; random walks and Markov chains. There is an honors version of this course: see MATH 60.

QDS

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
