Current Teaching

Here I will describe with a few words what I am currently teaching:

  1. MA1500 – Introduction to Probability (Fall 2015, Fall 2016, Fall 2017, Fall 2018, Fall 2019, Fall 2020): This is the first probability course for first year Math undergraduate students at Cardiff University. It covers basic probability including probability theory, basic distributions, moments, discrete joint probability distributions, conditional probability distributions.
  2. MA2501 – Programming and Statistics (Spring 2016, Fall 2016, Spring 2018, Spring 2019, Spring 2020, Spring 2021): This is a module which has a two-fold objective. First to teach the basics of programming principles to students and second to show them how they can do standard statistical techniques (exploratory data analysis, hypothesis testing, regression, multivariate data analysis, dimension reduction, clustering) in a software. I am teaching this using R. In this class I am using a flipped-classroom approach were a handout is given to student to go through simple examples and we then meet in class to do more complicated examples. Each week we spend 1 teaching hour in a standard lecture room and 2 teaching hours in a lab, which enables active learning to all the students. The students have coursework (almost every week) and they have a project were we usually simulate a board game.
