Find answers to the top 10 questions parents ask about TI graphing calculators.
Learn about the math and science behind what students are into, from art to fashion and more.
Discover new ways to help students succeed in math, science and STEM using TI technology.
Get hundreds of video lessons that show how to graph parent functions and transformations.
Students simulate a binomial distribution and calculate probabilities for a variety of situations involving binomial probability distributions.
Students investigate a binomial distribution of the survival rate of Emperor penguin eggs by creating a list of 50 simulations using the Random Binomial, randBin, command. This effectively simulates data with a given probability of success. Then students will sort the data to determine the experimental probability for a given number of eggs surviving.
Students calculate theoretical probabilities of a single event using both a formula and the Binomial Distribution Probability, binompdf, command.
Students calculate theoretical probabilities for at least and at most of a specific x-value using the Cumulative Binomial Probability, binomcdf, command. For example, the probability that at least 25 eggs hatch. They will also calculate the expected value.
