What This Lesson Covers

In Lesson 1 we introduce

  • random variables
  • the probability density function (PDF)
  • the cumulative distribution function (CDF)
  • the expected value, variance and standard deviation of a discrete random variable

Simply reading the content in this lesson will not be sufficient: students will need to complete a sufficient number of Exercises and WeBWorK problems in order to prepare themselves for the final exam.
