A co-publication of the AMS and IAS/Park City Mathematics Institute

Designed for precollege teachers by a collaborative of teachers,
educators, and mathematicians, Probability through Algebra is based on
a course offered in the Summer School Teacher Program at the Park City
Mathematics Institute.

But this book isn't a “course” in the traditional
sense. It consists of a carefully sequenced collection of problem sets
designed to develop several interconnected mathematical themes, and
one of the goals of the problem sets is for readers to uncover these
themes for themselves.

The specific themes developed in Probability through Algebra
introduce readers to the algebraic properties of expected
value and variance through analysis of games, to the use
of generating functions and formal algebra as combinatorial
tools, and to some applications of these ideas to questions in
probabilistic number theory.

Probability through Algebra is a volume of the book series
“IAS/PCMI—The Teacher Program Series”
published by the American Mathematical Society. Each
volume in that series covers the content of one Summer School
Teacher Program year and is independent of the rest.

Titles in this series are co-published with the Institute for Advanced Study/Park City Mathematics Institute. Members of the Mathematical Association of America (MAA) and the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) receive a 20% discount from list price.
