This text is intended for a one-semester course, and offers a practical introduction to probability for undergraduates at all levels with different backgrounds and views towards applications. Only basic calculus is required. The book is written so that the calculus difficulties do not obscure the probability content. The exposition initially focuses on fundamental probability concepts and an easy introduction to statistics. Theory is kept to a minimum here, the striking feature being numerous exercises and examples.
