Introduction to Probability and Statistics: Course Details

Professor Dmitry Panchenko teaches this undergraduate course offered by the MIT Department of Mathematics. 'Introduction to Probability and Statistics' is a great way for students pursuing bachelor's degrees in Mathematics to become familiar with probability theory and the use of statistical analysis methods. The two areas of study are closely related, since probability theory relies upon statistics in order to analyze random events. Topics in the class include random variables and distributions, union and independence of events, expectation curves, the central limit theorem and the use of estimators. This course is most useful to students who have already taken calculus.
