The videos below are part of a remotely delivered statistics course that follows the text Probability and Statistics for Engineering and the Sciences, by Jay Devore, Brooks/Cole, 2007.

The videos were produced with Camtasia studio. The slides were produced with the LaTeX beamer package.


This is an overview of the course.
