Title: Math in Games:Sports Gambling
Course Section Number: MAT-106-01
Department: Math
Description: This course serves as an introduction to mathematical thinking through examples in games, sports, and gambling. The primary mathematical concepts that will be explored are basic probability concepts of independent and dependent events, expected value, probability distributions, binomial coefficients. We will then apply these concepts to situations arising in games, sports, and gambling such as betting strategies, likelihood of streaks in sports, analyzing the efficacy of a sports statistic, andfinding winning strategies in games. One of the main goals of this course will be to develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills that will aid you outside of mathematics courses.This course does not count toward the mathematics major or minor. It will count toward the quantitative literacy requirement.
