Introduction to Counting & Probability by David PatrickLearn the basics of counting and probability from former USA Mathematical Olympiad winner David Patrick. Topics covered in the book include permutations, combinations, Pascals Triangle, basic combinatorial identities, expected value, fundamentals of probability, geometric probability, the Binomial Theorem, and much more.
As youll see in the excerpts below, the text is structured to inspire the reader to explore and develop new ideas. Each section starts with problems, so the student has a chance to solve them without help before proceeding. The text then includes solutions to these problems, through which counting and probability techniques are taught. Important facts and powerful problem solving approaches are highlighted through out the text. In addition to the instructional material, the book contains over 400 problems. The solutions manual contains full solutions to all of the problems, not just answers.
This book is ideal for students who have mastered basic algebra, such as solving linear equations. Middle school students preparing for MATHCOUNTS, high school students preparing for the AMC, and other students seeking to master the fundamentals of counting and probability will find this book an instrumental part of their mathematics libraries.
