Description:

Along with exercises in every chapter, this text introduces students to probability, statistics, and elementary mathematics through the use of many motivating examples from games, sports, and gambling. It covers permutations in the two-deck matching game so derangements can be counted, introduces graphs to find matches when looking at extensions of the five-card trick, and studies lexicographic orderings and ideas of encoding for card tricks. The text also explores linear equations and weighted equations in the section on the NFL passer rating formula and presents graphing to show how data can be compared or displayed. A solutions manual is available for qualifying instructors.
