About
the Course 
MTH
452 is an introduction to the mathematical statistics using calculus. Mathematical
statistics has a tremendous range of applications in all the sciences,
including the social sciences, business and economics, and engineering. It
uses a wide variety of mathematical techniques and concepts, especially
elementary probability theory, linear algebra and calculus. The class is
designed for an audience with diverse interests such as engineering, science, economics or business
major. This course will fully prepare you for actuarial P exam. In addition,
the study of Mathematical statistics can be entertaining, enlightening and
sometimes surprising. We will cover most of Chapter 714 of the textbook. 
Mathematica Notebooks developed by people in URI math
department will be available through SAKAI.
Sakai There will be practice problems and solved problems in Sakai site of the course.
