This study aims at improving teaching and learning abilities on the courses of probability/statistics in the fields of the S/W and H/W. In order to do this, this paper firstly conducts a survey which measures the perception of the surveyees' necessity of the related courses, and includes the contents that the related courses should cover. Secondly, this paper analyzes the educational effect on the achievement by studying Pattern Recognition, a major course of S/W and H/W, with combining probability/statistics or data analysis. Lastly, this paper suggests the promising pedagogical method for educating probability/statistics by using a survey and the case studies. In this way, this paper shows the necessity of probability/statistics for acquiring a new technology and the flexible approach of various subjects.
