After watching Sal lead up to the finer points of probability in the previous videos, students get a chance to see him grapple with some truly complex problems. He shows viewers how to see these problems as "intuitive" by giving the answer first, and then demonstrating how he arrived there.
If your students watch only one video on probability, make it this one. Sal's expertise is evident in the way he integrates the concepts from the previous videos, such as discrete and continuous probability distributions, as well as the way he introduces binomial distribution. Students who struggle with the more nuanced parts of probability will walk away from this video with new understanding.
Using graphs and colorful annotations, Sal makes probability a thrill to behold in this video about binomial distribution. He takes students through additional practice so that they can "get the hang of the binomial distribution" before he begins to teach about normal distribution.
Learners review previous lessons on mean, variance, standard deviation, and expected value. They utlize formulas for these characteristics that are specifically designed for the binomial distribution. Students discuss the similarities and differences between the formulas for finding the mean, variance and standard deviation for any discrete probability function and for binomial distributions.
For this binomial distribution worksheet, students explore real-life situations and the probability of a given outcome. They use probability distribution to organize data and arrive at the predicted results. This one-page worksheet contains 3 multi-step problems. Statistics to compile data are given at cited websites.
Students review basic probability concepts and examine the binomial probablity distribution. Using the binomial distribution, they identify and explain the criteria that must be satisfied to use it. They practice solving problems with the formula and calculate the mean, variance and standard deviation.
