STAT410: Probability Theory is a University of Maryland course that gives a proof-based introduction to the formulation and manipulation of probability models, leading up to a rigorous proof of the law of large numbers and the central limit theorem. The emphasis is on concepts: sets and combinatorics allow a precise mathematical formulation of probability models, multivariable calculus supplies machinery for changing variables and calculating probabilities and average values relating to vectors of real-valued random variables, and limit theorems allow event-occurrences which are individually unpredictable to become predictable in the aggregate.
The subject is taught to University of Maryland upper-level undergraduate students. Details for the class are here.
