Topics for Math 2030


The course had seven lectures remaining when the strike began. It had three after the strike ended.

The following topics were covered before the strike:

Essentially, this amounts to The following topics were covered after the strike: This material can be found in Sections 3.1, 5.1 and 5.2.

Assignment 6 is a problem set covering this material, with some other problems from sections 2.4, 2.5, and 3.5 (which didn't appear on an assignment prior to the strike). You can find Assignment 6 on the assignments page. It is not to be handed in, but was intended to practise this material in preparation for the final examination. An answer sheet is available, but you should try to do the problems before looking at it.

If there had been time I would have covered parts of Chapter 6. The topics I most regret leaving out are the geometric and exponential distributions. If you have time, once exams are over, I recommend that you read over sections 3.4 and 4.2 to see what was left out.
