Understand the foundations of probability and its relationship to statistics and data science.  We’ll learn what it means to calculate a probability, independent and dependent outcomes, and conditional events.  We’ll study discrete and continuous random variables and see how this fits with data collection.  We’ll end the course with Gaussian (normal) random variables and the Central Limit Theorem and understand its fundamental importance for all of statistics and data science. This course can be taken for academic credit as part of CU Boulder’s Master of Science in Data Science (MS-DS) degree offered on the Coursera platform. The MS-DS is an interdisciplinary degree that brings together faculty from CU Boulder’s departments of Applied Mathematics, Computer Science, Information Science, and others. With performance-based admissions and no application process, the MS-DS is ideal for individuals with a broad range of undergraduate education and/or professional experience in computer science, information science, mathematics, and statistics.

My rating applies to the first week, as I'm dropping after my experience with the first assignment. This is not a commentary on Prof. Dougherty, who seems like a teacher I'd really like to have in an in-person setting. It refers instead to the Gilliamesque homework submission and grading system. Before you join the class, be prepared:

All homework is submitted in an ipynb using an R kernel, and homework is autograded. The grader gives zero feedback regarding what was incorrect, not to mention why or what the correct answer is. All you get is the number of cells that didn't pass; when you reload the assignment, there is no indication of what was wrong.

As a math nerd troll, however, it's magnificent—the grading mechanism itself is a probability problem that provides one with hours of fun. By which I mean frustration.

I joined this class as a refresher, because I love probability. I'm dropping this course before that changes.

peer review assignments are useless

The instructor is very good, more examples need to be added, there are mistakes in the evaluation

創建者 Ke M


Sorry, but I can't learn R by myself. I know how to do all the calculations, just don't know how to put it in the R language.

T​his was a very good course. The material was well thought/planned out such that the readings, lectures, and homeworks built off each other in a constructive manner, which reinforced the material. I highly recommend taking this course as an introduction to probability.

Great course which covers from fundamental probability theory with good examples for better understandings.

創建者 Ping Q


Very logical arrangement, proper speech rate, crystal clear!

創建者 P A


G​reat intro and very well presented by the prof

The professor's instruction is clear and concise, but I wish there were more videos to expand on topics not discussed. The auto-graded assignments are painful since there is no feedback on which problem was wrong (hint: only do one problem at a time and submit to grader. it is painfully slow but this way you know how you did on each question). This course assumes you have basic familiarity with R and can do basic differentiation & integration. I would not recommend this as a first course in probability - this course is best for those who have had some exposure to probability already (E.g., undergraduate level course).

I​t's pretty basic material, but that's not a bad thing. I​ had no trouble with the content.

I​t took a month, or something like that, for Coursera to let do the peer grading that's required by the course.

Need to brush up integral calculus for thios course. Something I haven't looked at for 40 years.

創建者 Mauricio F


It was a great course. Good combination between theory and practice.

創建者 상은 김


H​elpful to understand data sciences basic thories

創建者 Daniel C


Exactly the probability course I was looking for

創建者 Hidetake T


Good course with sufficient amount of practice.

創建者 Claudia G D


T​he course is very good.

創建者 Kyle A


Great Course!

創建者 Matthew E


Lots of fun

創建者 Kevin H


N​ot enough participants for peer review, not quite enough time spent on curriculum

創建者 William S


I can't get software to run.
