(A brief note before I begin: During 7th and 8th grade, I took a math class after school called MEGSSS
. It also took place in the summer. I enjoyed the summer sessions, and hated the school-year ones. The Probability class took place in the summer of Year 2. (Another note: This is something for people in the St. Louis and St. Charles area.) (Hey look, a third note: The books we used for the class were books in the Elements of Mathematics
series. I wouldn't recommend buying these books for yourself, they are written very oddly and hard to understand unless you have already learned what they're talking about.))
Probability. It's used a lot in the world, and also in Heroscape. And I'm going to talk about it because I have nothing better to do.
It's pretty easy to figure out that if you flip a regular coin, that the odds of it being heads or tails would be 50-50. And with a regular die, each number has a 1/6 chance of showing up. But what if you flip two coins?...
