UMD has a fairly quantitative bent at the graduate level (not so much at UG). It's a well regarded program with an excellent math department to boot.
Hey guys -
I am looking through the textbooks for the University of Maryland math camp. All I can say is wow - they expect this to be review, but most of the statistics in the syllabus is new to me.
Is this common (i.e. math camp not being a review) or should I be worried? How mathematical is the maryland program relative to the rest of the nation? Does anyone know?
Mostly the statistics - I have taken real analysis so the micro/macro portion does not seem daunting.
We're using the Hogg-McKean-Craig book "Introduction to Mathematical Statistics", and the first 2.5 chapters I have encountered in my probability theory class, but I have not taken any classes that cover the other chapters.
This looks like it'll be a long summer for me.
By it's nature, camp will have to move pretty quickly through the math stats portion, so you may want to spend a little time trying to conceptualize the concepts on your own prior to the barrage of chalk.
