Part of a series of four pamphlets providing problems in probability and statistics taken from real-life situations, this booklet develops probability methods through random numbers, simulations, and simple probability models, and presents the idea of scatter and residuals for analyzing complex data. The pamphlet was designed for a student having a background in notions of probability and in elementary algebra. Fourteen different problem situations arising from the areas of biology, business, English, social sciences, physical sciences, sports, and mathematics are included. For other booklets and teachers' guides in this series, see SE 016 798 through SE 016 805. (DT)
