Students should be comfortable with most of the topics on mathematical calculus covered in:

**[P]**J. Ward, J. Abdey.**Mathematics and Statistics**. University of London, 2013.*Chapters 1-8 of Part 1*.

Extra-lessons refreshing such notions may be planned in the first part of the course.

The following are *mandatory text books*:

**[T]**F.M. Dekking C. Kraaikamp, H.P. Lopuha, L.E. Meester.**A Modern Introduction to Probability and Statistics**. Springer, 2005.**[R]**P. Dalgaard.**Introductory Statistics with R**. 2nd edition, Springer, 2008.

- The project can be done in groups of at most 4 students.
- The project must be delivered (report + code) by end of July.
- The oral discussion must be done by the September session, and it will cover both the project and all topics of the course.
- The project replaces the written exam but
**students have to register for the written dates in order to fill the student's questionnaire**. - Groups ready to discuss send the project to the teacher plus availability time slots for oral discussion.

* There are no mid-terms.* The exam consists of a written part and an oral part. The written part consists of exercises on the topics of the course. Each question is assigned a grade, summing up to 30 points. Students are admitted to the oral part if they receive a grade of at least 18 points. Written exam consists of open questions and exercises. Example written texts:
