The essential lifesaver for students who want to master probability
For students learning probability, its numerous applications, techniques, and methods can seem intimidating and overwhelming. That's where The Probability Lifesaver steps in. Designed to serve as a complete stand-alone introduction to the subject or as a supplement for a course, this accessible and user-friendly study guide helps students comfortably navigate probability's terrain and achieve positive results.
The Probability Lifesaver is based on a successful course that Steven Miller has taught at Brown University, Mount Holyoke College, and Williams College. With a relaxed and informal style, Miller presents the math with thorough reviews of prerequisite materials, worked-out problems of varying difficulty, and proofs. He explores a topic first to build intuition, and only after that does he dive into technical details. Coverage of topics is comprehensive, and materials are repeated for reinforcement—both in the guide and on the book's website. An appendix goes over proof techniques, and video lectures of the course are available online. Students using this book should have some familiarity with algebra and precalculus.
The Probability Lifesaver not only enables students to survive probability but also to achieve mastery of the subject for use in future courses.
A helpful introduction to probability or a perfect supplement for a course
Numerous worked-out examples
Lectures based on the chapters are available free online
Intuition of problems emphasized first, then technical proofs given
Appendixes review proof techniques
Relaxed, conversational approach

想要掌握概率的学生的基本救生员
对于学生的学习概率,它的众多应用,技术和方法看起来可以吓倒和压倒一切。这就是概率救生员进入的地方。旨在作为课程的完整独立介绍或作为课程的补充,这种易于访问和用户友好的学习指南有助于学生舒适地浏览概率的地形并取得积极成果。
概率救生员基于Steven Miller在布朗大学,霍尼克斯学院和威廉姆斯学院任教的成功课程。随着轻松和非正式的风格,米勒提供了对前提材料的彻底审查,不同难度的解决问题和证明的数学。他首先探讨一个话题来建立直觉,只有在此之后,他才能深入了解技术细节。主题的涵盖范围是全面的,材料重复加强,无论是在指南和书籍的网站上。附录超过了验证技术,课程的视频讲座可以在线获得。使用本书的学生应该熟悉代数和预先计算。
概率救生员不仅使学生能够生存概率,而且还能够掌握未来课程中使用的主题。
