### CONTENT

### OBJECTIVE

- To give an understanding of uncertainty and randomness

- To teach the fundemantal concepts and defintions of probability

- To equip the students with the tools and techniques of probability theory

### LEARNING OUTCOME

Upon completing this course students should be able to:

Use the basic principles of counting, permutations, combinations, and multinomial coefficients.

Perform set operations and compute elementary (conditional) probabilities.

Use the concept of random variables and their distributions, cumulative distribution functions.

Compute marginal distributions, conditional distributions and conditional expectations.

Evaluate mathematical expectations, moments, variances, co-variances, conditional expectations, and moment-generating functions.

Investigate the basic properties of important discrete and continuous random variables such as Bernouilli, binomial, hypergeometric, Poisson, uniform, exponential, gamma and normal.

Implement different techniques such as the distribution function technique, the moment generating function technique, the transformation technique to evaluate the distribution of functions of random variables.

Investigate the properties of various statistics (sample mean, sample variance, order statistics) taken from a population.

See the applications in various disciplines.
