During my Fall 2010 semester I took one class, a survey class, Applied Mathetical Analysis. It was a total blast. Sure, every topic covered had entire classes for and books written about them… but that just made it more interesting!
This semester is in my top-three favorite semesters of all time. I worked extremely hard, learned a lot, and will only have fond memories of it.
This past May, I completed the Simulation and Parallel and Distributed Systems class that I was attending. While taking two classes while working full time was challenging; the pure fun of it all more than made up for the challenge! I will have fond memories of that semester for a long time.
I can’t wait to get started with Applied Mathematical Analysis next week.
In Spring of 2010 I am taking two classes: MSCS 6020: Simulation (syllabus) and MSCS 6060: Parallel & Distributed Systems (syllabus).
In Fall of 2009 I took one class:
MSCS 6010: Probability which used Statistical Inference, Second edition by Casella & Berger.
Here is the syllabus for the course.
This past December, on the fifteenth, I completed the Probability class that I was attending.
We covered Probability from the theoretical (Calculus) and analytical (MATLAB) side of things. In my first foray into theory behind Statistics, I found the relationships between the distributions to be really neat to see, and along with the Calculus, a lot to chew on all at once ;).
Overall it was a lot of fun; I can’t wait to get started with Simulation on the eighteenth.
In the first half of the semester in the Probability course I am taking we learned (among other things) how to, given the probability distribution function for any distribution, derive, if possible, the:
Everyone seems to be excited about the second half of the semester when we will start building on this foundation.
