Superb course. I am very impressed with the way the faculty explained real world examples through the probability concepts. I wish we can have more courses from him on statistics and machine learning.
I really enjoyed this course. The explanations are clear and, as suggested by the title, the lecturer uses intuition and daily-life examples rather than abstract and formal definitions and notations.

I have been teaching probability for many years, but this course helped me to get a lot of insight about real life applicaions. I enjoyed the course very much. Thank you.

Nice course! Many thanks to Prof.Karl Schmedders! He made simple but deep enough introduction to probability. Now probability is fun and useful, and I want to learn more.

This is one of the best courses I've taken in Coursera. I've never seen anyone teaching probability like this. I wish there are more courses from the same instructor.

The lecturers have seamlessly weaved course
content + topical and intriguing examples/applications of Probability
into an engaging learning experience. Brilliant!

Excellent. Very clear instruction with some very interesting real life examples. Course a bit basic for me. Wish there was a follow-up with more advanced material.

Smart, up to the point, easy to follow, even the most complex theorems. Great presentation, helpful exercises, excellent real life application. I simply liked it!
Very simple, clear and at the same time capacious course. I especially liked the teacher Karl and his TA Jose, they were very enthusiastic and easy to understand.

Requiere un nivel muy básico del inglés. Es excelente para entender la teoría elemental de la probabilidad y para aprender las funciones básicas de esta en excel.

The contain is very clear, much better than other courses and books. It would be a fantastic idea whether the Prof will launch a new MOOC Advanced Stat course :).

An excellent introduction to probability. The course is really fun. I hope that the instructor could provide more advanced classes on probability and statistics.

A great intro course or refresher for someone doing basic probability calculations. The topics are well structured and the exercises in class are practical.
Wonderfully helpful. If you ever need help in probability, take this course. It teaches you all important fundamentals in a engaging and fun way. Loved it.

Karl does not always take you through all of the math, but his enthusiasm for learning and of the subject matter counteracts any short-coming he may have.
By Asha S•
Clear, solid content with relatable real-world applications make it fun. Quite lively too. Prof. Schmedders is how we wish our Math professors would be!

Exceptional course. Stands out amongst the many I have completed or attempted. The humour is particularly engaging and makes the course a treat to take.
Very nice course. It does what the title says. Excellent instructor. Thank you so much professor
Karl Schmedders, the TA, and the whole Coursera team.

Easy, smart, and funny introduction to probability. Recommend this course to those who feel that probability would be difficult but would like to learn!
By peter n•
Extremely entertaining professor and very interesting examples / stories / exercises that are cleverly structured and in an easily understandable way.
By Robert E•
A really great course with good explanations. My favorite parts were the applications in week 3 and finally understanding what a z-score is (week 5).
By Herbert E D•
A thoughtful and engaging course to help one think critically about probability without getting bogged down in too many maths details: really helpful.
By Shweta n•
i liked the nice broken down explanations, sometimes during the excercise and table my mind would wobble but on repeat watching it, it was understood

Excellent course for beginners! It has really sparked an active interest of probability and has prepared me for an intermediate statistics course.
