Course Description: A
calculus based statistics course with a strong emphasis on probability theory.
Exercises are both theoretical and applied, including both discrete and
continuous probability distributions such as the Binomial, Geometric,
Hypergeometric, Poisson, Normal, Beta and Gamma. The course provides the
underlying theory and mathematically derived techniques of Statistics.
Mathematical Statistics with Applications (Seventh Edition)
