9780716771098: Introduction to Probability

Unlike most probability textbooks, which are only truly accessible to mathematically-oriented students, Ward and Gundlach’s Introduction to Probability reaches out to a much wider introductory-level audience.  Its conversational style, highly visual approach, practical examples, and step-by-step problem solving procedures help all kinds of students understand the basics of probability theory and its broad applications.  The book was extensively class-tested through its preliminary edition, to make it even more effective at building confidence in students who have viable problem-solving potential but are not fully comfortable in the culture of mathematics.

About the Author:

Mark Daniel Ward is an Associate Professor of Statistics at Purdue University.  He has held visiting faculty positions at The George Washington University, the University of Maryland, the University of Paris 13, and a lecturer position at the University of Pennsylvania.  He received his Ph.D. from Purdue University in Mathematics with Specialization in Computational Science (2005), M.S. in Applied Mathematics Science from the University of Wisconsin, Madison (2003), and B.S. in Mathematics and Computer Science from Denison University (1999).  His research interests include probabilistic, combinatorial, and analytical techniques for the analysis of algorithms and data structures.  Since 2008, he has been the Undergraduate Chair in Statistics at Purdue, and the Associate Director for Actuarial Science. Dr. Ward is currently the Principal Investigator for two NSF grants, "MCTP: Sophomore Transitions: Bridges into a Statistics Major and Big Data Research Experiences via Learning Communities" (NSF-DMS #1246818, 2013-2018), and "Science of Information: Bringing Many Disciplines Together" (NSF-DUE #1140489, 2012-2014).  He is also Associate Director of the Center for Science of Information (NSF-CCF #0939370, 2010-2015). 
He and his wife homeschool their four children.

Ellen Gundlach has been teaching introductory statistics and probability classes at Purdue University as a continuing lecturer since 2002, with prior experience teaching mathematics or chemistry classes at Purdue, Ivy Tech Community College of Indiana, The Ohio State University, and Florida State University.  She is an associate editor of CAUSEweb and editor of the MERLOT Statistics Board.  Her research interests include K12 outreach activities (ASA’s first Hands-on Statistics Activity grand prize winner in 2010), online and hybrid teaching (Indiana Council for Continuing Education’s Course of the Year award in 2011), T.A. training, academic misconduct, statistical literacy, and using social media in statistics courses. She enjoys spending time with her sons Philip and Callum, playing the flute with several local groups, and supporting (and formerly skating with) the Lafayette Brawlin’ Dolls roller derby team.

Descripción W.H.Freeman Co Ltd, United States, 2015. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. 1st ed. 2016. Language: English . Brand New Book. Unlike most probability textbooks, which are only truly accessible to mathematically-oriented students, Ward and Gundlach s Introduction to Probability reaches out to a much wider introductory-level audience. Its conversational style, highly visual approach, practical examples, and step-by-step problem solving procedures help all kinds of students understand the basics of probability theory and its broad applications. The book was extensively class-tested through its preliminary edition, to make it even more effective at building confidence in students who have viable problem-solving potential but are not fully comfortable in the culture of mathematics. Unique Chapter Order* Outcomes, Events, and Sample Spaces begin the book, to clarify the relationship between events and random variables* Coverage of jointly distributed random variables appears early (Ch. 8), providing a more intuitive introduction to concepts such as binomial random variables* Chapters on counting are in the middle of the book, giving students time to settle into the course and become more creative in solving problems before encountering these often-confusing topicsWell-Paced Coverage* Appealing, uncluttered layout, minimizing proofs and excess symbols, gives students a more inviting experience with the book* Chapter Goals and end-of-chapter Summaries help students see the big picture of each chapter * Boxed formulas, Checkpoints, and margin notes guide students through chapters and make review and exam preparation more effective* Separated calculus material lets instructors decide how much calculus to bring into the courseA Rich Collection of Exercises, Examples, and Problems* Examples and exercises have realistic contexts relevant to students lives-for example, one problem considers how music players operate in shuffle mode* Problems are in three levels: practice (as warm-ups), extensions, and advanced.
