Students explore the concept of binomial distribution. In this binomial distribution lesson, students perform binomial distributions on a number of problems in this lecture lesson. Students find the mean and variance of binomial distributions.
Pupils investigate some of the math skills an actuary would use.  In this secondary mathematics lesson, students investigate Bernoulli trials and binomial distributions as they solve probability problems. 
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.
Moving from coins to basketball, Sal explores binomial probability distribution again in this review video. Students who are familiar with the ins and outs of basketball will be able to make a real-life connection to the concepts presented in the video.
In this binomial distribution activity, 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 activity contains 3 multi-step problems. Statistics to compile data are given at cited websites.
For this binomial distribution worksheet, 9th graders solve and complete 5 different types of problems. First, they compute the probability of successes using the binomial formula. Then, students find the probability that out of a given number they determine the outcome.
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.
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.
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.
Students explore the concept of poison distributions. In this poison distribution lesson, 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.
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.
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. No additional materials are included. Worksheets, problems, and tests will need to be self-generated.
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.
Students calculate the normal distribution. In this statistics lesson, students use the normal distribution to estimate binomial distributions. They define when to use NP and n(1-p) to make approximations.
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.
In this binomial probability distribution worksheet, learners organize data and create a distribution table. Students determine the probability of a designated event. This two-page worksheet contains explanations, examples and approximately 5 multi-step problems.
High schoolers multiply integer polynomials using Algeblocks quadrant mats to illustrate the process. Several handouts and worksheets are linked, including one with 16 problems based on essential questions.
In this multiplying binomials instructional activity, students solve and complete 20 different problems. First, they multiply or distribute the first term in the first binomial times each of the terms in the second binomial. Then, students take the second term in the first binomial and multiply this term times each of the terms in the second binomial.
Students model formulas for rectangles and squares. In this area, arithmetic and algebra lesson, students explore the formula for the area of squares and rectangles. They use squares to model the formula for the area and identify binomials.
In this multiplying binomials worksheet, 9th graders solve and complete 23 different types of problems. First, they use the Distributive Property to find each product. Then, students use the FOIL method to find each product. They also find the area of a square with a given side length.
