Big Data and Coin Flipping: an Intro to University Mathematics
We will discuss studying mathematics at university, and give a flavour to what research in statistics looks like. We will see some fun illustrations of probability and statistics such as the Monty Hall problem, how this can be solved by simulation, and some puzzles related to generating arbitrary probabilities using a coin.
To arrange a session, contact Elke Thonnes on E.Thonnes@warwick.ac.uk.
Note: Events are subject to staff availability and priority is given to schools that are:
- Local to Coventry and Warwickshire
- Have a high proportion of students who meet the targets set out in the Warwick Access and Participation Plan.
