This video is an opener for all the work which will take place needing the Binomial Distribution. The video opens with a look at the Binomial Expansion and what it is. It uses this to scaffold the learning for the Binomial Distribution and how we can use it to find the values of probabilities so long as there are only two outcomes from an experiment.
Examples of how to use the binomial distribution are covered alongside the use of the CAS and how to use the binomialPDF and binomialCDF functions.
Wow! What a long title. This is one of the best videos to date as it shows what the graphs of Binomial Distributions look like for different values of n and p. It then goes on to look at how the Expected Value (Mean) can be calculated alongside the Variance and Standard Deviation.
Some wonderful examples are thrown in for good measure too.
Mathematics is all smoke and mirrors. It's also a massive trick. Mostly it uses language to try and trick us! It also likes to ask us to do things backwards (and that does not mean facing the wall!). Most questions will give you the value of n and p and ask you for find probabilities. This video looks at how to find the value of n when given values of p and the total probability!
Using both pencil and paper methods and the CAS calculator I take a wander through this awesome topic. Who says the Binomial Distribution isn't fun!
