Course Description

A Calculus-based introduction to probability and the application of mathematical principles to the collection, analysis, and presentation of data. Modern probability concepts, discrete/ continuous models, and applications; estimation and statistical inference through modern parametric, nonparametric, and simulation/randomization methods; maximum likelihood; Bayesian methods. This course prepares students for the preliminary P/1 exam of the Society of Actuaries and Casualty Actuarial Society.
