Prereqs enforced by the system: MATH 20 or 22 or 23; Open to Degree and CDE students

Section Description

According to the great probabilist Bruno di Finetti, "Probability does not exist!" Probability is a construct of the human mind and, as such, is used to quantify our beliefs. This course involves the study of random phenomena. The notion of probability is developed from experimental as well as a theoretical perspective. You will have an opportunity to use some of the skills acquired in other mathematics courses, especially in the areas of: elementary set theory, combinatorics, infinite series, exponential and logarithmic functions, and definite integral evaluation.

Section Expectation

Come to every class prepared and ready to learn. You should have a solid background in differential and integral calculus.


There will be three (3) midterm exams given during the semester along with a final examination. I plan to have several quizzes/assignments as well which will most likely be done on BlackBoard.
