This course will be an experiment: to see whether N2N members have any interest in mathematical topics and to see whether some difficult mathematics can be taught with little prior knowledge. There will be 4 topics: What is Probability? (with lots of examples and problems) , Distribution Functions (with pictures and explanations), What the Law of Large Numbers Doesn’t Say (a prolonged counter-intuitive example), and Decision Making and Hypothesis Testing. Some familiarity with algebraic notation will be needed, but no other formal mathematics knowledge.
