All the courses I am teaching this semester

Intro. Probability and Statistics – MATH 3510

Introduces the basic notions of Probability: random variables, expectation, conditioning, and the standard distributions (Binomial, Poisson, Exponential, Normal). This course also covers the Law of Large Numbers and Central Limit Theorem as they apply to statistical questions: sampling from a random distribution, estimation, and hypothesis testing.

Intro. Probability Theory – MATH 4510/5510

Studies axioms, combinatorial analysis, independence and conditional probability, discrete and absolutely continuous distributions, expectation and distribution of functions of random variables, laws of large numbers, central limit theorems, and simple Markov chains if time permits

Linear Algebra – MATH 2130

This course is an introduction to linear algebra. Topics we will cover include basic properties of systems of linear equations, matrices and matrix algebra, determinants, vector spaces, subspaces, linear independence of vectors, basis and dimension of subspaces, linear transformations, eigenvalues and eigenvectors of a matrix, orthogonality of vectors, inner product and length of vectors.
