[4 credit(s)]
STA 524 is an introduction to the mathematical theory of probability and statistics using calculus. It is the study of statistics from a mathematical standpoint and prepares students for further study of statistical inference. It provides a strong foundation in mathematical statistics for understanding the concepts and development of statistical methodology. The class is designed for an audience with diverse interests. If you are an engineering, science, economics or business major, mathematical statistics will be a basic part of your mathematical toolkit; If you are a secondary math education major, this course will help you understand concepts of discrete mathematics and basic probability theory; If you are interested in taking the actuarial probability exam, this course is absolutely fundamental since we will use some problems from actuarial exams as examples.
