Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Probability and statistics without calculus?  Well, yes, many problems are small and finite.  And the basic concepts can certainly be illustrated by examples that are small and finite.  


Bell curve, Poisson distribution, probability density, all calculus.  

Every time you replace an intractible situation involving very large (but finite) numbers with a continuous model you are doing calculus.  

The Fates are kind.
