This activity involves binomial trials, distributions, and probabilities. Students can create the binomial distribution following the steps in Binomial_Pdf_Eye_Color_Create-84 document.
- Find the probability of specific outcomes from a spreadsheet of values.
- Find the probability of specific outcomes from the graph.
- Find the probability of mutually exclusive events from a graph or spreadsheet.
- Change the sample size and the probability of a success and find the probability of specific outcomes.
- binomial distribution
- expected value
About the Lesson
Students will observe that a binomial distribution is a function of both sample size and the probability of a success. They will interpret a table of binomial probabilities and will answer probability questions using the graph of a binomial model for a random variable involving binomial trials.
