STATISTICS AND PROBABILITY

STATISTICS AND PROBABILITY

25.00

CLASS FEE: $350
(Your $25 application fee will be applied to your first payment.)

This is a beginning course in probability that introduces many of the topics that are the bedrock of statistical analysis. Topics include basic probability rules, randomness, probable versus possible events, correlation versus causation, independence, and a basic introduction to hypothesis testing. We will investigate these using simulations and critical thinking within the context of current events and social debates.

Parents and students are advised that some of these topics may be controversial (e.g., the death penalty and its intersection with race or the recent presidential election). Every effort will be made to acknowledge and present a variety of perspectives while making a safe space to disagree. If appropriate, I will also acknowledge my own bias when I think it might affect the presentation of the information.
