## Binomial PDF Color #### Activity Overview

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.

#### Objectives

Students will:

• 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.

#### Vocabulary

• binomial distribution
• expected value
• probability

#### 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.
