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
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.
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.
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.
Love the course, and its willingness to delve into the basics of the theory behind biostatistics. Wish there were more like it.
