  1. Hello all, I'm considering getting a tablet, because I want to be able to work through math problems in groups on Zoom. Right now I just use my mouse, but it's hard to write anything clearly. The biggest downside right now is the cost. I'm wondering if anyone has any recommendations on whether this will actually be a big help for working through problems. Also, if I should get a tablet, what kind (I'm thinking an iPad with an Apple Pencil, but I would love something more affordable if possible)? I am starting a Ph.D. program in Statistics this fall. Thanks!
  2. They list both a masters-level and a phd-level measure theory course on their course listings page (the phd-level course being required for the program) but it lists an undergraduate real analysis as prerequisite for the masters-level course. I think I'll plan on doing a cursory overview of real analysis this summer and then taking the masters-level course.
  3. Hello all, I've recently accepted an offer of admission to a stats PhD program, and now I'm trying to plan my summer. It's looking like due to the pandemic, I'll be spending a lot of time at my parents' house. Although I'm sure I'll spend a lot of time playing video games and reading for fun, I also want to review some math/stats topics. I know I need to review Real Analysis since I've never taken a formal class in it. My plan is to go through as much of Rudin's Principles of Mathematical Analysis as possible, and to review my notes from my undergrad statistics courses. I would welcome an
  4. Thanks! That makes sense. My combinatorics class was proof-based, and in Discrete Math we looked at and wrote many formal proofs, though I'm not sure it was "proof-based." I will reach out to my undergrad professors and see what they think.
  5. I am applying for PhD programs in Statistics to start Fall 2020. I have heard that undergrad-level Real Analysis is generally important to have for PhD programs. I would like to take it, but I graduated in Spring 2019 and have been unable to find a local course to enroll in while also working full-time. My options now seem to be self-study, or taking it online such as through Harvard Extension school. Would the cost of a Harvard Extension course be worth it as opposed to self-study? Are there any other online (especially self-paced) options? And how can I indicate in my applications that
