About the Course
The course will explore topics in randomness and probability, with some real-life applications. It runs in an "IBL" format: no lectures, no exams, no textbook. Instead, students write their own "final textbook" based on in-class group worksheets. Worksheets are submitted on three occasions:
- Each worksheet is due one week after it's completed in class, together with the corresponding homework problems.
- All worksheets that have been handed back by February 23rd are due as a half-textbook on February 27.
- All worksheets are due on April 20, in the form of the final textbook.
In addition to worksheets and homework, there will be short bi-weekly quizzes to make sure everyone is on track.
Attendance and friendly group work is an essential part of the course (and will affect grades).
