# Goals

All areas of data science are concerned with collecting and analyzing data. This course is designed to provide foundations of probability and statistics. From this course, student will understand how probability and statistics explain the data generating process and can be used to analyze data.

• · Definition of Probability
• · Random Variables
• · Expectation , Convergence of Random Variables
• · Statistical Inference
• · Parametric and non-parametric method (such as Bootstrap)
• · Hypothesis test
• · Bayesian Inference
