Prerequisites

Students should be able to solve simple derivatives and integrals with respect to a single variable. Students should also be familiar with the standard normal distribution function (e.g., being able to translate z-scores to probabilities and vice versa), and the basics of probability theory (e.g., conditional probabilities). (for students Business Engineering the latter two aspects are introduced in the course Beleidsstatistiek (1738) which runs simultaneously)
