Counting is one of the basic mathematically related tasks we encounter on a day to day basis. The main question here is the following. If we need to count something, can we do anything better than just counting all objects one by one? Do we need to create a list of all phone numbers to ensure that there are enough phone numbers for everyone? Is there a way to tell that our algorithm will run in a reasonable time before implementing and actually running it? All these questions are addressed by a mathematical field called Combinatorics.

TOP REVIEWS FROM COMBINATORICS AND PROBABILITY
I lacked confidence in permutations and combinations since my high school, but now i am enjoying solving combinatorial problems. Thanks to professors
Difficult topics discussed in easy to understand ways and uses fun and interesting problems/exercises to test your understanding.
the dainty old dude was the worst lecturer who rambled non-coherent nonsense. the younger folks were much better verbal communicators. overall great course!
I've covered these topics before but there were a lot of great problems and extensions of concepts in this course. Worth doing.
