Calculus-Based Statistics - Probability Theory

Probability Theory - also called Calculus-Based Statistics - is the "upper level" statistics course that uses Calculus to explore the topics of elementary statistics.

This course is a gateway course for Data Science, Economics, and any discipline that utilizes data - that really means ALL JOBS these days!!

The curriculum for our Probability Theory course is absolutely wonderful, exploring the topics of beginning statistics with a fresh approach, devoid of the "here's the next formula and here's what it means" commonly found in traditional textbook courses.

Our Distance Calculus Probabality Theory course is highly experimentation-based, so you will run simulations in either LiveMath or Mathematica, and look at the topics empirically, trying to determine what is going on with the mathematics like a good scientist would - using observation and deductive reasoning.

Probability Theory covers the all of the topics in a basic non-major Statistics course. You do not need to have taken "baby" Statistics prior to taking Probability Theory - but you will need Calculus II under your belt.

Below are some videos on our Probability Theory Course:

Review: I highly recommend this course! Dr. Curtis is the best teacher and is ALWAYS willing to work with you to make sure you understand the subject. It was definitely a positive experience and the credits were transferred to my University with no problems! I definitely do not regret it and I had doubts in the beginning but if I had to, I would do it all over again!

Review: This is the most interactive and productive online course I have ever taken. I had taken calculus before but never understood some of the underlying concepts until I took this course. If you want to really learn calculus in a way that will stay with you for the rest of your life, take this course.
