Engineering Mathematics III (ENGG2430)

Student/Faculty Expectations on Teaching and Learning Student/Faculty Expectations on Teaching and Learning

Instructor: John C.S. Lui

In this course, we cover fundamental principles of probability theory and statistics, and to learn how to use these frameworks (or methodologies) to have a logical thinking to carry out analysis on computer science and engineering related problems.

Note that this course is "highly conceptual" and "mathematical". Students need to spend time to read the textbook, do the homework, attend the lectures and tutorials so to understand and keep pace with the expectation of this course.
