# Mathematical Foundations of Statistics I - MAT4173/5373

**Catalog entry**

*Prerequisite*: MAT1213/MAT1214 Calculus I.

*Content*: Mathematical Foundations of Statistics I is an introductory course that covers key concepts in statistics from a mathematical perspective, including populations and samples, descriptive statistics, probability, discrete and continuous distributions, transformations, jointly distributed random variables, covariance and correlation, order statistics, and the Central Limit Theorem. The course equips students with foundational knowledge and techniques for data analysis and statistical modeling in various fields.
