In a world as crazy as this one, it ought to be easy to find something that happens solely by chance. It isn't. Kevin McKeen
The Orderly Pursuit of Pure Disorder.
Discover, January, 1981
American Heritage Dictionary defines the Probability Theory as the branch of Mathematics that studies the likelihood of occurrence of random events in order to predict the behavior of defined systems. Starting with this definition, it would (probably :-) be right to conclude that the Probability Theory, being a branch of Mathematics, is an exact, deductive science that studies uncertain quantities related to random events. This might seem to be a strange marriage of mathematical certainty and uncertainty of randomness. On a second thought, though, most people will agree that a newly conceived baby has a 50-50 chance (exact but, likely, inaccurate estimate) to be, for example, a girl or a boy, for that matter. Interestingly, a recent book by Marilyn vos Savant dealing with people's perception of probability and statistics is titled "The Power of Logical Thinking". My first problems will be drawn from this book.

"When you are listening to corn pop, are you hearing the Central Limit Theorem?"

Nature of the Material
The materials below are intended for high school and college instructors of introductory probability and statistics classes. There is substantial material on how to incorporate Texas Instrument's TI-83 statistical graphing calculator in the various lessons which follow, but I hope that those instructors who don't intend to have their students use this calculator will still find some interesting ideas for use in their classroom. These materials were developed by with the support of South Dakota Governor's Grant awarded for the summer of 1998. Click here for information on the other Governor's Grant projects.
Many of the activities below have TI-83 code associated with them. When you click on a link (e.g. below) you will see a listing of this TI-83 code. Roger's TI-83/TI-83 Plus/TI-89 Code may also be dowloaded from your PC to your calculator provided you have a Web browser and a TI-Graph Link Cable with associated (free) software . Comments, suggestions, criticisms of this code are welcome at

85. About Probability And Statistics
In XIX century social statistics became an integral part of developed country activitiesand need of statistical method, based on probability calculus
About probability Since XVII century, when foudations of Theory of probability have been placed, until present days, it is subject of researching for many different scientists. It is so relevant in a modern society, because of its significant help in approaching and complete recognizing of different problems in science. Although importance of probability is not controversial, there are discussions all the time about its theoretical bases. Philosophers, mathematicians, statisticians and others are engaged in those discussions. Theory of probability is specialy significiant in statistics inference, which is established on its bases. We can tell that two main reasons have contributed to appearance of interest in probability and development of its mathematical bases. The first reason came from mathematical problems in games of chance. In XVIII century Swiss mathematician Bernuli set theoretical bases of probability as one mathematical discipline. Some time later that development advanced in Laplas' works, with his determine way of understanding the world. He said that probability is an integral part of natural science, as theory of mistakes, based on systematic enviroment studying and its variability in repeated measurings. In theory development Gauss' contribution is valuable through works in field of normal mistakes law.

Specialized Subject ``Probability and Statistics``
Apart from general mathematical knowledge, the intensive study of Probability and Statistics requires basic knowledge of Measure Theory. Succeeding the lecture Introduction to Probability and Statistics which can be subject in the intermediate exam in Applied Mathematics , further aspects of Probability and Statistics are taught in 4+2 lesson lectures. Normally this includes a lecture on Probability Theory and one on Stochastic Processes or the Mathematical Theory of Statistics . In addition to one of these lectures, successful participation in the training lecture is required. Both lectures (together) can be subject of the exam in Applied Mathematics for the Diploma For further specialization or as a preparation for the diplom-thesis in the field of Probability and Statistics a seminar and one or two more special lectures are recommended. The content of these is determined individually, e.g. Asymptotic Statistics, Markovian Processes, Statistics of Higher Dimensional Data, Stochastic Modelling
