# MATH 471&472 (2014-2015)

Fall 2014: Math 471 (Probability)
Spring 2015: Math 472 (Statistical Inference)

Lecture calendar

Required textbook: deGroot and Schervish, “Probability and Statistics”.

Prerequisites: Multivariable calculus (MATH 243/244) and, ideally, transition to advanced mathematics (MATH 321).

Grading: Best of two midterms 45%, homework 5%, final 50%.

Notes
The textbook uses $A\subset B$ for $A$ being a subset of $B$; more normal would be to write $A\subseteq B$.
