# Ses 1 | Probability: Random Isn't So Random, Summer 2008

In this session: Basic concepts I; Law of large numbers

A lot of events in our life seem random or impossible to predict. However, with probability theory we can learn more about these things to solve interesting problems that range from the lottery to diagnosing medical diseases. By teaching you basic principles and more advanced topics about theorems and models, this class will give you the tools to see the world in a different way that may not be intuitive but is proved by the math behind it.
