1 International College of Economics and Finance Syllabus Probability Theory and Introductory Statistics Lecturer: Mikhail Zhitlukhin. 1. Course description Probability Theory and Introductory Statistics is a twosemester course for rstyear students of the ICEF specializing in economics. The course is taught in Russian and English. The course is devoted to basic notions of statistics: data collection methods, the notion of a population and a sample, descriptive statistics, statistical methods of parameter estimation and hypothesis testing, regression models, etc. The course also includes topics from Probability Theory, which are essential for a consistent delivery. 2. Course objectives The main objective of the course is to provide students with knowledge of basic statistics. By the end of the course the students should understand the subject of statistics and master its basic methods. They acquire skills of primary data analysis (how to nd a mean, a median, a standard deviation and other descriptive statistics), graphical representation of data (histograms, stemandleaf plots, dot plots, box plots). The students learn how to formulate and solve typical problems of basic statistics: point and interval parameter estimation, hypothesis testing, correlation analysis, regression models. An essential part of the course is devoted to basics of Probability Theory, which serves as a foundation of statistics. The students should understand the notion of a probability space, a random event, the probability of an event. They should know how to compute the probability of a complex event, solve basic combinatorial problems, understand the formula of total probability and the Bayes formula. The students should have a clear understanding of the concept of a random variable and its distribution. They should also understand the meaning of the Law of Large Numbers and the Central Limit Theorem. In classes students both solve theoretical problems and perform computer tasks with real data, develop practical skills and intuition. By the end of the course, students should understand the theory of statistical methods and be able to apply them in practice. In the course students obtain the amount of knowledge sucient for the AP Statistics test. 3. Methods The following methods and forms of study are used in the course: lectures (2 hours a week), classes (2 hours a week), weekly home assignments, oce hours, selfstudy. The course consists of 58 hours of lectures and 58 hours of classes. 4. Grade determination The students sit a written midterm exam in the rst module and a nal semester exam in the end of the second module. The exams include multiple choice and free response questions. In the fourth module the students sit a midterm exam of a similar form. After that the students have the AP Statistics exam. 1
2 The grade for the rst two modules is made up of the autumn midterm exam grade (30%), the winter exam grade (60%), the average grade for home assignments, classroom activities and tests (10%). The nal course grade is made up of the grade for the rst two modules (25%), the grade for the spring midterm exam (30%), the grade for the AP exam (35%), the average grade for home assignments, classroom activities and tests in the 3rd and 4th modules (10%). 5.
