Introduction to Probability

Module Overview


The notion of chance or probability of an event plays a crucial role in statistics. In this module we will study this notion and learn different rules that will help us determine the probability of different types of events associated with a process.

Learning Objectives:

  • Random experiment, sample space, events
  • Permutation and Combination
  • Definition of probability of an event and its properties
  • Disjoint and independent events
  • Conditional events
  • Venn and Tree Diagrams
  • Complement (Subtraction) rule
  • Addition rule
  • Multiplication rule
  • Division rule
  • Two-Way tables
  • Total Probability Rule and Bayes Rule
