About this item

From a freshman seminar he has taught for more than 20 years, Gould has developed a textbook to interest students in mathematical theory by starting with applications of interest to many of them: games, sports, and gambling. In so far as possible, he says, the examples use real-world data. His topics are basic probability, the game is afoot, repeated play, card tricks and more, dealing with data, testing and relationships, games and puzzles, and combinatorial games. This being a freshman course, only high school level mathematics is required. Annotation ©2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
