Currently Teaching

MATH-295
3 Credits
This course develops strategies for solving problems that are chosen from a wide variety of areas in mathematics. Students present solutions to the class or instructor.
MATH-255
3 Credits
This course provides challenging problems in probability whose solutions require a combination of skills that one acquires in a typical mathematical statistics curriculum. Course work synthesizes basic, essential problem-solving ideas and techniques as they apply to actuarial mathematics and the first actuarial exam.
MATH-251
3 Credits
This course introduces sample spaces and events, axioms of probability, counting techniques, conditional probability and independence, distributions of discrete and continuous random variables, joint distributions (discrete and continuous), the central limit theorem, descriptive statistics, interval estimation, and applications of probability and statistics to real-world problems. A statistical package such as Minitab or R is used for data analysis and statistical applications.
STAT-405
3 Credits
This course provides a brief review of basic probability concepts and distribution theory. It covers mathematical properties of distributions needed for statistical inference.
STAT-406
3 Credits
This course is a continuation of STAT-405 covering classical and Bayesian methods in estimation theory, chi-square test, Neyman-Pearson lemma, mathematical justification of standard test procedures, sufficient statistics, and further topics in statistical inference.
