MATH 2030 3.0AF (Fall 2008)
Elementary Probability

Announcements and documents will be posted here as they become available.




As of November 5, the most recent topics studied were variances (sections 3.2 and parts of section 4.1) and the hypergeometric distribution (sections 2.5 and 3.6). We have defined independence for random variables, but have not yet used it in computations.

You should be reading ahead in the textbook, to be prepared to ask about topics that are unclear, when they come up in class. Be aware that though we will follow the text, we will not necessarily cover all topics, nor will we necessarily cover the topics in the order the textbook presents them. With this in mind, here is the basic list of topics we will cover, in the order we will treat them. Note that this list has been shortened due to the strike.

We will not cover Sections 2.3, 4.3, 4.4, or 4.6.
