This class introduces some of the most fundamental ideas in classical probability. Polling techniques, casino gambling, weather forecasting, and lotteries are a few areas in which the principles of probability directly influence our lives. Modern science depends upon probability to build mathematical descriptions of the real world. This course explores the concepts of probability in an intuitive and accessible way, understandable to beginners. Topics include sample spaces, counting, conditional probability, and the concept of independence, game theory, random variables, and the law of large numbers. Formerly HU 283
