Welcome to Probability! This course aims to teach some basic probabilistic concepts to help students grasp a more mathematical view of the world. No previous experience of probability is assumed.

You should take this class if you are curious about probability and have little or no experience with it. Students who have taken it before could take it as a review, but please keep in mind it is primarily for beginners.

The Program

This course was offered through the High School Studies Program (HSSP), a project of the MIT Educational Studies Program. HSSP offers non-credit, enrichment courses to 7th–12th grade students on Sundays at MIT. This program is designed to give these students a chance to take courses in a wide variety of topics. Courses cover both academic and non-academic subjects. The classes are designed to be fun and interesting for students and to offer them an opportunity to learn about something in which they're interested.
