The focus of this course is to introduce students to probability and random variables. In this course, topics include distribution functions, binomial, geometric, hypergeometric, and Poisson distributions. The other topics covered in this course are uniform, exponential, normal, gamma and beta distributions, conditional probability, and Bayes theorem. Along with these joint distributions, Chebyshev inequality, law of large numbers, and central limit theorem.

Assessment

This course does not involve any written exams. Students need to answer 5 assignment questions to complete the course, the answers will be in the form of written work in pdf or word. Students can write the answers in their own time. Each answer needs to be 200 words (1 Page). Once the answers are submitted, the tutor will check and assess the work.
