Entropy

Can someone describe entropy in a easy way for me? It gets a little confusing.

Entropy is simply a measure of disorder (more entropy more disorder). We are trying to calculate the change in entropy for a system due to changes in temperature, volume, etc. As volume increases or temperature increases there is more disorder in the system therefore entropy increases.
