We start our investigations with a number of elementary examples which involve probability. These examples lead to a definition of an experiment, which consists of a space of possible outcomes, together with an assignment of probabilities to each of these outcomes. We define and study basic concepts associated with experiments, including combinatorics, independence, conditional probabilities and a first law of large numbers.
