This is the outline of a first course in (discrete) Probability that I gave in the summer of 2009. We used as text, the first volume of Feller's `An introduction to Probability and examples'. There are innumerable books (eg., Sheldon Ross' introductory book is quite popular and good) that contain the same concepts are available. Feller's book has the advantage of containing a spectacular array of examples and perhaps the disadvantage(?) of not being linear. Solving problems was one of the main activities in the course and is essential to comprehend the material. Apart from the problems in the book, I gave out a few problem sets.
