Description

This course introduces you to the mathematics of probability and chance. It starts by teaching you about making arrangements and selection in mathematics, and then covers how to calculate expected values.

Next you will learn about calculating the probability of both simple and compound events, along with probability in independent events. You will be introduced to tree diagrams and how to calculate probability with them. You will also learn about calculating probability in reverse using Bayes’ theorem.

The second module teaches you about what ‘distributions’ are and how to compare them. You will learn what ‘binomial distribution’ is and how to work out a maths problem using it. Finally, you will be taught how to use Microsoft Excel to calculate monomial probabilities and the mean of a binomial distribution.
