Prerequisite and Course Objectives Prerequisites: Stat 100A is the first course of the three-quarter sequence “Probability and Statistics Theory (100A, B, C).” It is calculus based (integration for functions of one and several variables, matrix algebra required), and it will also use a free software for simulations. Students who register for this class must have completed Mathematics 32B, 33A. Some familiarity with programming will be helpful as well. This course counts towards the minor in Statistics. http://statistics.ucla.edu/undergraduate-program/statistics-minor Course Objectives: Variation is present in everything we measure and that creates uncertainty about what we might encounter when we take actions. Probabilistic models and laws of chance help understand and model variation so that uncertainty can be quantified and made useful for decision making. The whole discipline of statistics is based on the models we learn in this class. In this course, we learn to appreciate randomness in many situations, not just “games of chance.” By a mixture of theory, experimentation with random numbers that let you see chance at work, and understanding of applications in practice, this course Important Notes Reading the syllabus is required.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
