In an effort to better forecast the future for gains, and combat the potential losses of uncertainty, numerous disciplines have come to rely on the power of statistics and probability. By observing patterns and repeated behaviors, mathematicians have devised calculations to significantly reduce human potential for error. This volume introduces the historical and mathematical basis of statistics and probability as well as their application to everyday situations. Readers will also meet the prominent thinkers who advanced the field and established a numerical basis for prediction.
