Probability provides a framework for dealing with uncertainty and for interpreting predictions based on uncertainty. Students will use probability to make informed observations about the likelihood of events and to interpret and judge the validity of statistical claims. Statistics is utilized for the collecting, representing, and processing of important data. Learning to apply these statistical techniques in solving problems, students will enhance their social awareness and career opportunities.
