The goal Introducing students to basic methods of probability theory in discrete and continuous models: combinatory problems, conditional probability, random variables and their numerical characteristics, laws of large numbers and central limit theorem, and basic ideas in Mathematical statistics.
The outcome A student will be able to apply methods of Probability and Statistics in solving some real life problems, to apply appropriate mathematical models. He/she will also able to estimate parameters and test hypotheses about parameters or about distributions.
Contents of lectures Fundamental concepts and applications of combinatorics. Conditional probability and independence of events. Random variables and their distributions. Numerical characteristics of random variables. Laws of Large Numbers and Central Limit Theorem. Estimation of parameters and tests of hypothesis.
Contents of exercises Students learn how to apply theorems and fundamental concepts from lectures, through examles, exercises and problems. Students are introduced to some mathematical softwares and they learn how to use them doing homeworks.
