## Recommended Prerequisites

Basic statistics and mathematics.

## Teaching Methods

The presentation will be done through theoretical and practical classes. In the lecture we will present the fundamental results associated with the probability theory, with the presentation of concepts, definitions and theorems. The tutorials aim to build on the concepts and results presented in lecture, giving examples with a set of practical exercises that will be proposed throughout the semester.

## Learning Outcomes

Overall objectives

The overall objective of the curricular unit is that the student understands the importance of the concept of probability and recognize its usefulness as a way to understand different phenomena embedded in an environment of uncertainty.

Specific objectives

It is intended to give to students of a set of results associated with the concept of probability and statistical inference.

Generic competencies

Being approved in this curricular unit, the students must; be able to calculate the probability of events;  how to use a sample to make inferences regarding the elements of the population.

Specific competencies

Being approved in this curricular unit, the students must; know how to calculate basic probabilities; how to define point estimates and interval estimates of the parameters associated with a given population.
