The framework for understanding the world around us, from sports to science. See more...
How can we accurately model the unpredictable world around us? How can we reason precisely about randomness? How can we make the best decision when working with incomplete information? This exploration will guide you through the most important and enjoyable ideas in probability to help you cultivate a probabilistic worldview with which to experience life - or while watching sports.
It depends on how often you get interrupted, but a good guess is about 12 hours—an hour for each chapter, which includes time to read some of the related wiki pages.
We analyzed hundreds of millions of problem tries by Brilliant users and built this collection for rapid, effective learning. We used that data and combined it with our learning method to make a collection of quizzes that are challenging and enjoyable.
