Introductory Mathematical Statistics (STAT2001)

A first course in mathematical statistics with emphasis on applications; probability, random variables, moment generating functions and correlation, sampling distributions, estimation of parameters by the methods of moments and maximum likelihood, hypothesis testing, the central limit theorem, and Bayesian statistics.

## Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:

1. Calculate probabilities using set theory and combinatorics;
2. Use and describe discrete, continuous and multivariate random variables and their probability distributions;
3. Define sampling distributions and use the central limit theorem;
4. Use the method of moments and maximum likelihood estimation;
5. Perform confidence estimation and hypothesis testing; and
6. Use and describe the fundamental concepts of Bayesian statistics and Bayesian estimators.
