I enjoyed the class and I think the professor did a good job. I would take classes with her in the future.

The Math department is trying to make this class rigorous however I believe the syllabus has not been well-developed (yet?). While the class attempts to introduce Probability as Measure Theory, it does not go in much detail, leaving students only confused. Overall however, I did learn quite a bit from this class and would recommend 170A over STATS 100A to anyone who wants to learn Probability in a little more depth.

Professor Rebrova definitely knows her stuff but is not a great lecturer. The lectures are not clear and organized and I often am confused at the end. However, Office Hours are useful and she answers your questions very clearly. She has taught probability before so it might just be the change in curriculum that affected her teaching so maybe give her a chance!

FYI: For this virtual format, most of the grade weightage was given to quizzes (best of 4 out of 5 count) for a total of 60%!!! In general the exams and quizzes were a little tricky.
