MATH 572 - Mathematical Statistics

Credits: Three (3)
This course introduces students to basic concepts of inference and main methods of estimation. Topics include statistical inferences such as point and interval estimation of parameters, statistical hypotheses tests and ANOVA; inferences for single samples; inference for two samples; inferences for proportion and count data; and advance estimation methods including Moment, percentile matching, Maximum Likelihood, Bayesian. This course emphasizes the applications of the theory to statistics and estimation. This is a calculus-based one semester course. Project based learning is used to help students develop effective problem-solving skills and effective collaboration skills.

Students who receive a B- or higher in this course are eligible to receive VEE (Validation by Education Experience) credit from the Society of Actuaries in Mathematical Statistics.
Note: This course is for graduate students only.
