Elements of Mathematics, Book 11: Finite Probability Spaces.
Exner, Robert; And Others
One of 12 books developed for use with the core material (Book O) of the Elements of Mathematics Program, this text covers material well beyond the scope of the usual secondary mathematics sequences. These materials are designed for highly motivated students with strong verbal abilities; mathematical theories and ideas are developed through problem situations and explanatory materials. In this volume, sample problems and a historical note are used to introduce the ideas of probability space and probability function. Counting principles, conditional probability, expectation, and the law of large numbers are among the topics covered. (SD)
