This class presents the fundamental probability and statistical concepts used in elementary data analysis. It will be taught at an introductory level for students with junior or senior college-level mathematical training including a working knowledge of calculus. A small amount of linear algebra and programming are useful for the class, but not required.

TOP REVIEWS FROM MATHEMATICAL BIOSTATISTICS BOOT CAMP 1
I knew a lot about probability before starting this course, but I didn't know much of anything about frequentist statistics. This course helped me understand some tricky concepts.
Very concise, well-presented course. This was my second time taking it as a refresher. Prof. Caffo does a great job presenting the materials. However, prepare to be challenged.
Great course, though a little difficult in parts, particularly the first week. Worth working through though for a better understanding of probability and statistics.
This course is phenomenally well developed with great curriculum and materials for building astrong base to enter into statistics with a strong base of knowledge.
Overall good lectures and good practice material. Certainly not an introductory stat course - requires working knowledge of calculus and basic biostats.
I enjoyed the course. I wish there was perhaps a little more evaluation along the way (maybe occasional in-lecture questions), but otherwise very nice.
Good course, needs updating, since it was a first generation course. Worth taking, but make sure to review a bit of Calculus, especially integration.
Topics presented well for comprehension, good lecture quality.\n\nThese topics are covered in grad level statistics courses at certain universities.
