Omitir Sobre este curso

This course is part five of the MathTrackX XSeries Program which has been designed to provide you with a solid foundation in mathematical fundamentals and how they can be applied in the real world.

This course introduces probability and how it manifests in the world around us. Beginning with discrete random variables, together with their uses in modelling random processes involving chance and variation, you will start to uncover the framework for statistical inference.

Guided by experts from the School of Mathematics and the Maths Learning Centre at the University of Adelaide, this course will introduce discrete and continuous random variables and their applications in a variety of contexts.

Join us as we provide opportunities to develop your skills and confidence in applying mathematics to solve real world problems.
