## Module content and teaching

###### Principal aims

This course aims to introduce the concept of probability as quantified uncertainty, to give a critique of the frequentist interpretation of probability and to provide the basic knowledge necessary to pursue further study in probability and statistics.

###### Principal learning outcomes

By the end of the course students should be able to: understand the concept of probability as a measure of uncertainty, and how considerations of symmetry enable simple classical problems to be solved; understand and be able to apply, in simple settings, basic results such as the addition law and Bayes Theorem; understand and be able to check and apply, in simple settings, the concept of independence of events; understand Means and Variances of discrete random variables.

###### Timetabled teaching activities

3 hours per week, plus 2 hours of tutorials
