As preparation, students are expected to have only a thorough background in high school algebra. The Primer can be used to provide two types of courses: (1) a course for mathematical science students interested in detailed proofs and (2) a less mathematically oriented course emphasizing the results of the proofs and examples. This second type of course might well be offered for high school seniors. At this level a course in probability should be oriented toward ''problem solving, " for only by working problems do students really master the subject.
