## Description

An introduction to the concept of probability evaluation. Concepts progress from defining statistical and experimental probability and inclusive and exclusive events (including the general definitions of intersection and union) to conditional probability and identifying the complement. As each new concept is introduced, entertaining examples of use such as playing cards and dropping buttered slices of bread are provided for students to practice the application of various types of probability study.
