Probability and Chance in Mathematics
  • Description
  • Outcome
  • Certification
  • This free online course introduces you to the mathematics of probability, chance and the analysis of data. The course begins by introducing data collection and analysis, graphs and frequency distribution. The course examines chance in the context of gambling, odds and probability. The course is of interest to anybody who needs to analyse mathematical data and is particularly valuable to students studying for exams.

  • After completing this course you will be able to compare and calculate the mean, mode and median. You will know the meaning of the inter-quartile range. You will be able to effectively interpret the nominal, discrete and continuous data of frequency tables and graphs. You will be aware of different types of graphs. This course will help you to understand probability in contexts such as rolling a dice and tossing a coin.

  • All Alison courses are free to study. To successfully complete a course you must score 80% or higher in each course assessments. Upon successful completion of a course, you can choose to make your achievement formal by purchasing an official Alison Diploma, Certificate or PDF.
