Discussion the Teaching Methods Reform on “Probability Theory and Mathematical Statistics” of Independent College

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering book series (LNEE, volume 163)


Independent College is a new school model of Higher Education in our country, how to train students to adapt to the needs of society is its urgent problem. From the practical teaching, this paper analyzes the current situation and point out the problems on Probability theory and Mathematical Statistics in Independent Colleges, and proposes a solution to optimize the teaching methods, including case teaching method, mathematical modeling, multimedia teaching, hierarchical teaching and Analogy teaching method. All this methods want to change the mode of purely mathematics teaching and guiding the students to solve statistical problems around, so as to stimulate students’ interest and motivation in learning, to laying a solid foundation for the study of specialized courses.
