## Mathematics 321## Probability and Statistics I |

- demonstrate the ability to analyze and solve mathematical exercises in probability with a style and precision appropriate to the third-year level of university;
- demonstrate a modest familiarity with the applications of a computer algebra system to solving problems and displaying results in probability.

Note that there is a student solutions manual with solutions to many but not all exercises available for this text. It is certainly not required for this course, but many students find such resources helpful for checking their work.

Sewanee's tradition of cordial and constructive student-faculty relationships is one of its great strengths, and I am very happy to support that tradition. Official office hours for this course are as follows:

If you would like to talk with me in addition to the interactions generated during those hours, please make an appointment to see me in my office (WL120), either when you see me in class or in the hallways or in my office, or by email (cparrish@sewanee.edu), or by voice mail message (x1333).

- Professor Jenny Baglivo teaches statistics at Boston College, and she has made some of her very fine teaching materials available on the Internet. Check out her class notes for Math 426, Probability, by clicking on her links for "notebook01, notebook02, notebook03, notebook04, notebook05." Her statistics courses continue with MT427, Mathematical Statistics and MT480, Topics in Modern Statistics, all based on the text by Professor John Rice of UC Berkeley.
