### 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.

Teaching Assistants (HSH Eng. Bldg, Room 120):

Textbook:

• Homework: 10%;
• Programming or simulation: 15%;
• Midterm Exam: 25%;
• Examination: 50% (note: you need to get at least 25% in the final exam to pass the course)

Discussion Forum:

Policies:

• No late homework, programming or simulation project will be accepted;
• Missing Midterm:
• No make-up midterm;
• If students who miss their midterm and there is no justifiable reason, they will automatically receive "zero" mark in their midterm;
• If a good justification can be provided, then the instructor may consider moving the 25% midterm to be weighted alongside with the final exam.
• For those students who don't study hard, well, please watch this video: "Wise saying from Gandalf, wizard from the Lord of the Rings"

Outline for the course:

• Introduction to Statistics and Probability
• Random Variables, Distributions, and Expectations
• Probability Distributions
• Sampling Distributions and Data Descriptions
• One- and Two-Sample Estimation Problems
• One- and Two-Sample Tests of Hypotheses
• Linear Regression
• ....etc.

Midterm Exam: March 11, 2014 !!!!!!!!!! Coverage: Chapter 1-2.
Final Exam: April 30, 2014, 9:30 - 11:30 am, University Gymnasium !!!!!!!!!!
