Description:  This is a first course in undergraduate probability. It requires a solid knowledge of Calculus (I, II, III), and covers standard material such as combinatorial problems, random variables, distributions, independence, conditional probability, expected value and moments, law of large numbers, and the central limit theorem. This course is three credit hours. It serves as a QRQI course (quantitative reasoningMath, quantitative reasoningstatistics/logic, and quantitative intensive). ( Warnings) 
Grading:  Four noncomprehensive exams (25% each). 
Exams:  There are no
makeup examinations in this course, and the exams
are not comprehensive. All exams are held in the lecture hall. The dates are:

Assignments:  Assignments are posted below.
New assignments are announced during the lectures.
Homework is neither collected, nor graded; you should follow them in order to be ready
for the exams.
The homeworks are generally a mixture of theoretical
(theorem/proof; about 30% of the time), and computational
problems.
The only way to keep up with the pace of this course
is to solve, at the very least, the assigned homework
problems in a timely fashion. 
Seeking Help:  To find help, the students are encouraged to visit the instructor during the designated dropin office hour (web link), schedule an appointment (web link), or visit the fine (nocost) tutoring center (web link) of the department of mathematics. The tutoring center is centered at the T. B. Rushing Undergraduate Student Center in the basement of LCB.
