Learning Objectives

The course is meant to provide the basics of the theory of probability, random variables and distribution functions as well as the main concepts of inferential statistics and hypothesis testing.

Bridging Courses

Calculus (suggested not mandatory).

Learning Achievements (Dublin Descriptors)

Knowledge and understanding: the student will be acquainted with the basis of the mathematical theory of Probability and of the Inferential Statistics.

Applying knowledge and understanding: the student will be able to theoretically analyse problems where stochastic variability plays a fondamental role.

Making judgements: the student will be able to choose among several approaches the suitable solution to probabilistic problems.

Communication skills: the student will be able to communicate probabilistic informations by use of the techniques of the differential and integral calculus.

Learning skills: the student will learn the methodology to be used in the mathematical formulation of empirical phenomena.

Assessment

The exam of Probability and Statistics  consists of a written exam and an oral one, both of them mandatory.

The written exam, to carry out in two hours, consists of exercises related to the topics of the course. The written exam is passed if the mark is, at least, 15/30. During the written exam it is not allowed to use textbooks, workbooks or notes. Moreover, it is not allowed to use scientific calculators and mobile phones, under penalty of disqualification.

The oral exam consists of a discussion related to the topics of the course.  The oral exam can be taken only if the written one has been passed. If so, the oral exam can be taken only in the same call in which the written exam has been passed or in the other calls of the same session.

Notes

The course offers additional e-learning facilities on the Moodle platform > elearning.uniurb.it
