What you’ll learn

Probability, Counting, and Story Proofs

Conditional Probability and Bayes’ Rule

Discrete Random Variables

Continuous Random Variables
Requirements

High school level

Singlevariable calculus: familiarity with matrices.

algebra concepts, derivatives and integrals.

Not all units require Calculus,

the underlying concepts can be learned concurrently with a Calculus course or on your own for selfdirected learners.
Description
About this course:
Probability and statistics help to bring logic to a world replete with randomness and uncertainty. This course will give you the tools needed to understand data, science, philosophy, engineering, economics, and finance. You will learn not only how to solve challenging technical problems, but also how you can apply those solutions in everyday life.
With examples ranging from medical testing to sports prediction, you will gain a strong foundation for the study of statistical inference, stochastic processes, randomized algorithms, and other subjects where probability is needed.
 Statistics is the discipline that concerns the collection, organization, analysis, interpretation, and presentation of data. In applying statistics to a scientific, industrial, or social problem, it is conventional, to begin with, a statistical population or a statistical model to be studied.
 Probability is simply how likely something is to happen. Whenever we’re unsure about the outcome of an event, we can talk about the probabilities of certain outcomes—how likely they are. The analysis of events governed by probability is called statistics.
