Sample text

This second type of course might well be offered for high school seniors. At this level a course in probability should be oriented toward ''problem solving, " for only by working problems do students really master the subject. Worked examples, taken from a variety of disciplines, are provided throughout the text. To encourage students to work more problems, solutions, some in considerable detail, are given for the exercises at the end of each chapter. As it is actually the students who are the real critics of any text, the author is indeed grateful to the many students who have provided helpful suggestions concerning the text and the problems.

Without his help, this Primer would never have been a reality. Finally the author wishes to thank Dr. D. B. Owen for bringing this book to the attention of the publisher.
