On this page, you will find information for SM316, Engineering Mathematics with Probability and Statistics.

Course Objectives: At the end of this course, midshipmen are expected to:

• use the concept and properties and theorems about probability and probability distributions to model real life phenomena and to compute and interpret probabilities of events.
• use statistical methods to estimate parameters a population from a sample and interpret the results.
• perform matrix computations and use basic spectral theory to analyze the structure of a matrix.

Below you will find assignments and course material.

Tips and suggestions for writing up your homework:

An example of written homework solutions. Note that these solutions are typed, but yours may be hand written.

• Observe rules of academic integrity.  Handing in plagiarized work, whether copied from a fellow student or off the web, is not acceptable. Plagiarism cases will lead to sanctions.
• Homework is collected at the beginning of the class period on the due date. You can bring the homework earlier to the instructor's office or email it.
• Working in groups on homework assignments is strongly encouraged; however, every student must write their own assignments.
• Organize your work neatly. Use proper English. Write in complete English or mathematical sentences. Answers should be simplified as much as possible. If the answer is a simple fraction or expression, a decimal answer from a calculator is not necessary. For some exercises, you will need a calculator to get the final answer.
• Put problems in the correct order and staple your pages together.
• Do not use paper torn out of a binder.
• Be neat. There should not be text crossed out.
• Recopy your problems. Do not hand in your rough draft or first attempt.
