Why is quiz part often harder than content in a maths textbook?

I find many problems very very tough to do in Casella's probability textbook, which reveals knowledge not covered in his content.

It seems a convention that maths teachers leave the hardest part in problems.

Unfortunately I am not a guy relying on answer manuals.

Geeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

dunno

Hi George,Y;

Casella's probability textbook,

Which one?

It seems a convention that maths teachers leave the hardest part in problems.

I am forced to agree. I have seen some where the problems are undoable even if you are familiar with the chapter.


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
Of course that result can be rigorously obtained, but who cares?
Combinatorics is Algebra and Algebra is Combinatorics.
