Counting and Probability II
One-semester course. This course is ideal for students who have mastered Algebra II and want to dive into creative problem solving. Students will continue to study the concepts introduced in the Counting and Probability I. Students will explore sets and logic, constructive counting, distributions, mathematical induction, Fibonacci numbers, recursion, conditional probability, and combinatorics. This course emphasizes learning how to solve difficult problems. As such, students are allowed, and encouraged, to attempt problems multiple times until they master the concept.
Prerequisites: Successful completion of Algebra II. Completion of WTMA’s Counting and Probability I elective course or AOPS Introduction to Counting and Probability is strongly recommended.
