I want to learn probably and statistics so I can understand analog and digital communications.

Are probability and statistics basically the same thing?

Which is more important: math or physics?

How are some people able to design circuits with little or no math training? Don't they need to know calculus, maxwell's equations, Laplace, Fourier, etc?

Can someone prove ohm's law for me? Are mathematical proofs important, or can I plug and chug?

You should consider joining an Electronics forum if you haven't already done so.

It is possible to design circuits without much maths or proofs, it's how I started many years ago, it's enough to build simple filters and do some analogue maths functions. At the age of 12, I hadn't heard of Maxwell, Fourier or Laplace.
I have since learnt about those during my degree, and have since forgotten them, you only really use that stuff for in-depth design/analysis. I don't do that every day but I can refer to it if I need to. Having learnt it in the past helps a lot, if I were coming at it with no previous knowledge it would be quite daunting!

Mathematical proofs are very useful, knowing how to derive proofs comes in handy when you need to derive something which there isn't a proof for.

Plug and Chug is what you end up doing for the most part, it's a waste of time to start from first principles every time. But, it is important to go through the pain of it a few times so you know how to get there when there's no Plug and Chug method.

How do you know what values to use for resistors, capacitors, inductors, power supply, etc when you design these circuits, so it won't blow up or fry any of these components?
