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
The content is in-depth and the instructor is knowledgeable, but the quiz demands a quite wide knowledge base and does not provide feedback.
I wish this Johns Hopkins course is more interactive. Like the Ohio State Calculus One class.
Very concise, well-presented course. This was my second time taking it as a refresher. Prof. Caffo does a great job presenting the materials. However, prepare to be challenged.
I liked the course. Need good maths skills. Would prefer to have a review/HW after each lecture than at the end of each week.
