### Course Syllabus

#### Abstract

The goal of studying the discipline "Mathematics and Statistics" is to familiarize students with algebra, probability theory and mathematical statistics at the level that would allow students to solve applied problems that require the use of mathematical apparatus. The course materials can be used for the further study and application of methods aimed at solving problems from different fields of knowledge, for the definition and study of mathematical models for such problems. This discipline will allow the students of the Department of Applied Political Science to study the mathematical and statistical components of their professional education.

#### Learning Objectives
