MATH 2190 (M 25C) PROBABILITY AND STATISTICS I (4 credits)

MATH 2200 (M 25D) PROBABILITY AND STATISTICS II (4 credits)

Prerequisite:MATH 1140 and MATH 1150 (M 12A and M 12B) or Permission of the Head of DepartmentAnti-requisite: MATH 2140

Prerequisite:MATH 1140, MATH 1150 and MATH 2190 (M 12A, M 12B and M 25C) or Permission of the Head of DepartmentAnti-

and MATH 2150 Syllabus:

(M 25A and M 25B)

Foundations of Probability, basic discrete and continuous dis- tributions; expectation. Joint distribution of several discrete and continuous random variables. Covariance and correlation. The Central Limit Theorem. Basic ideas of point and Interval Estimation. Maximum likelihood Estimation Type I and Type II errors, significance level and power. Hypothesis of means, variances and proportions. Regression Analysis (mainly simple linear regression). Experimental Design. One and two-way ANOVA. Basic ideas of sampling from finite populations.Comment:MATH 2190 (M 25C ) is a four (4) credit alternative to both MATH 2140 ( M 25A) and MATH 2150 (M

25B) and is primarily aimed at non-Mathematics Majors.
