# Intro to Prob and Stats

There is no required textbook. All lecture notes will be posted here. For further reading I recommend John E. Freund's Mathematical Statistics with Applications. Strange Fact: The author died in 2004 and the current edition is written by Miller and Miller.
Office Hours: Tues and Wed at 4-5pm over Zoom. Also by appointment. Here is the syllabus. | ||
