Binomial Distribution 1
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.

Binomial Distribution 4
Sal trades in his trusty calculator for an Excel spreadsheet in this probability video. Students who need to see math problems graphically represented will appreciate how clear-cut and understandable this video is - and might possibly be motivated to master Excel calculations as well.

Expected Value of Binomial Distribution
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.

Binomial Distribution 2
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.

6 Poisson Distributions
Students explore the concept of poison distributions. In this poison distribution instructional activity, students construct poison distributions by surveying the number of cars that pass a point in a specific amount of time. Students find poison distributions of telephone calls and customers in the post office within a given amount of time.

Mean, Variance, and Standard Deviation for the Binomial Distribution
Students 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.

Poisson Process 2
Continuing his discussion of the Poisson Distribution (or Process) from the previous video, Sal takes students through the derivation of the traffic problem he had begun. The math gets gritty in this video as Sal takes out the graphic calculator to solve the problem.

7th Grade Math: Algebra (Distributive Property)
With algebra tiles in hand 7th graders will uncover the wonders of the distributive property of multiplication. They will take a pre-test, define the distributive property, then model and practice using their tiles to solve basic equations involving distribution.

Using the Binomial Theorem
A week's worth of teaching on the Binomial Theorem. Lesson examples and a plethora of worksheets included. Learners find coefficients of specific terms within binomial expansions using notation of factorials and then apply these skills in using the Binomial Theorem to find solutions to practical applications.

Poisson Process 1
Sal's lesson begins with a word problem about the number of cars that pass by a certain point at any given time. Using (and explaining) the Poisson Process, Sal outlines the necessary assumptions and "mathematical tools" to solve this problem, which he continues in the next video.

Introduction to Random Variables
Sal integrates the concept of random variables into probability problems in this video. Clarifying that the terminology can be technical but that the process is simple, Sal can get through to even the most reticent math student.

The Poisson Distribution
Students define Poisson distribution. They illustrate this in class by counting the number of times the word "the" is said in a news program for one minute. Students may also count the number of cars entering or exiting a parking lot in a specified interval of time.
