This class presents the fundamental probability and statistical concepts used in elementary data analysis. It will be taught at an introductory level for students with junior or senior college-level mathematical training including a working knowledge of calculus. A small amount of linear algebra and programming are useful for the class, but not required.

TOP REVIEWS FROM MATHEMATICAL BIOSTATISTICS BOOT CAMP 1
Not your average Coursera Course! Actually challenging. Brian Caffo's voice sounds a bit likw Sheldon Cooper!
Great course, though a little difficult in parts, particularly the first week. Worth working through though for a better understanding of probability and statistics.
Brian Caffo is the best statistics teacher I have ever had. I like how he breaks down things and he covers the ways to think about statistics far beyond any course I have taken.
A whirlwind tour of statistics. Questions are very tough. You have to rack your brains hard, to solve them. But well worth the effort.
