Dates: May 18 - August 14, 2015; Prereqs: MATH 020 or MATH 022
This course will be a study of how we can use probability to model random phenomena. Topics will include: - Properties of probability including conditional probability, independence and Bayes' Rule. - Discrete random variables and their probability distributions including Uniform, Hypergeometric, Binomial, Negative Binomial and Poisson distribution models. - Continuous random variables and their probability distributions including Uniform, Exponential, Gamma, Chi-square and Normal distribution models. - Bivariate distributions including joint, marginal and conditional probability distributions, sums of independent random variables and the bivariate normal distribution.
Two semesters of calculus are a prerequisite for STAT 151. We will use both differential and integral calculus.
