5/22/2011 -- Group B: Probability via problem solving (Prof. Marek Biskup)

The concept of probability will be introduced and further elucidated by way of studying examples and solving problems. Specifically, we will discuss the notion of likelihood, the operations that are allowed (and not) for probabilistic reasoning, independence and departures from it, connection to geometry, etc.
