Assumptions in Geometric Probability  ☆

Geometric probability makes use of measurement to determine probabilities. For example, the probability of hitting a bullseye could be found by computing the ratio of the area of the bullseye (4π in^2) and the area of the entire dart board (64π in^2), which is 4/64 = 0.0625; or the probability of breaking a stick randomly …

Functions, Bijections, and Combinatorics  ☆

At times, studying general definitions of functions and particular classifications of functions (e.g., bijective, surjective) can seem tedious. As a secondary teacher, the functions we consider nearly always map real numbers to real numbers, which can make it difficult to be motivated to push past this into the abstract. While bijections have implications for infinite …
