Learning Outcomes

  • Be able to identify, formulate and solve certain probability problems;
  • understand the model assumptions and mathematical properties of some common
    random processes, which may include Markov chains, random walks, Poisson
    processes and martingales;
  • be able to use these models in simple applications.

15 points from MATH102, EMTH118 or
MATH199; and another 15 points from 100 level STAT, MATH or
EMTH (excluding MATH101 & MATH110)
