Official Course Description:
Second semester Engineering and Science Mathematics is offered in two parallel classes that cover a common set of core topics at approximately the same level of difficulty. However, style of exposition and selection of additional material will vary slightly to meet the needs of different groups of majors.
ESM 2A is recommended for students majoring in Life Sciences or Chemistry. It covers the following topics: Linear Algebra (equations of lines and planes, matrix algebra, system of linear equations, matrix inverse, vector spaces, linear independence, basis, dimension, linear transformations, change of basis, eigenvalues and eigenvectors, diagonalization). Probability (basic notions of set theory, outcomes, events, sample space, probability, conditional probability, Bayes' rule, permutations and combinations, random variables, expected value, variance, binomial, Poisson, and normal distributions, central limit theorem). Statistics (one-sample hypothesis testing, two sample hypothesis testing, chi-square hypothesis testing, analysis of variance, bivariate association, simple linear regression, multiple regression and correlation).
