Abstract

Because probability and statistics are as much about intuition and problem solving, as they are about theorem proving, students can find it very difficult to make a successful transition from lectures to examinations and practice. Since the subject is critical in many modern applications, Yuri Suhov and Michael Kelbert have rectified deficiencies in traditional lecture-based methods, by combining a wealth of exercises for which they have supplied complete solutions. These solutions are adapted to needs and skills of students and include basic mathematical facts as needed.
