Random processes can be described mathematically by using a probability model: a list or description of the possible outcomes (the sample space), each of which is assigned a probability. In situations such as flipping a coin, rolling a number cube, or drawing a card, it might be reasonable to assume various outcomes are equally likely. In a probability model, sample points represent outcomes and combine to make up events; probabilities of events can be computed by applying the Addition and Multiplication Rules. Interpreting these probabilities relies on an understanding of independence and conditional probability, which can be approached through the analysis of two-way tables.
The free camp was led by Pasco School District teacher Maya Donnelly and guest instructors Penny McKenzie and Dan Sanner of PNNL. In addition, several staff from PNNL ( David McKinnon, Sarah Adkins (Delta High alum), Daisy Quiroga (Delta High alum), Michael Patterson, Darlene Thorsen, Jacob Waddell (Delta High alum), Nathan Krussel, Marshall Smith, Mary Sue Hoxie and former PNNL employee Peter Neorr (Delta High CyberPatriots coach) ), the Columbia Basin College Tech club with the Computer Science Department Head, Don Humphries, also participated in portions of the camp.
