**Win, Lose, or Draw** is a non-algebra based math course that fulfills a general education mathematics requirement. The class structure is discovery-based with students working in groups rather than lecture-dependent, appealing to students for whom math is not a strength.

The theme of the course involves games and the mathematics behind them with an emphasis on understanding concepts as opposed to memorizing formulas. Topics include logic, sets, combinatorics, probability, and expectation. This workbook is the only book students need for the class and contains group work, notes, reviews for tests, and a final review with answers provided.
