Random Variables & Introduction to Probability Distributions
This program covers the important topic of Random Variables and Probability Distributions in Probability and Statistics. We begin by discussing what a random variable is and how it applies to probability distributions. Next, we solve several problems that involve Random Variables and Probability Distributions to give students practice with the material. The entire lesson is taught by working example problems beginning with the easier ones and gradually progressing to the harder problems. Emphasis is placed on giving students confidence in their skills by gradual repetition so that the skills learned in this section are committed to long-term memory.
