Additional Resources: At Khan Academy, counting techniques (Part 4 of this course) and probability applications (Part 5 of this course) are all mixed up together. The only counting videos that don't include probability concepts seem to be one on permutations and one on combinations. However, a large number of illustrations of counting techniques appear in the Khan Academy videos mentioned in Part 5 below. So you'll get some good review of counting techniques if you consult those videos when you get to Part 5. [Note: The Khan Academy videos and most mathematical texts use a different notation for combinations and permutations from what you find in our own videos. What we denote by C(5,3), i.e. the number of combinations in which 3 objects can be chosen from 5 objects, is denoted in most texts by 5C3, and similarly P(5,3) is written generally as 5P3.]
