I work through a few probability examples based on some common discrete probability distributions (binomial, Poisson, hypergeometric, geometric — but not necessarily in this order). I assume that you’ve been previously introduced to these distributions (although this isn’t necessary for the geometric problem, as the probability is easily calculated from basic probability rules). Students sometimes have difficulty determining the appropriate distribution to use, so this video may give some help with the proper thought process.

    Thank’s for the efforts,professor Jeremy Balka’s

    excellent explanation..

    Dear Prof Balka,

    I am returning to university to finish the second half of an honours degree in mathematics and statistics, as a mature student, and using your videos to stir the pot regarding the statistics and probability that I once knew. They are excellent! Neither too slow nor too fast, too superficial nor too detailed, they are a fantastic accompaniment to my revision of lecture notes and exercises from the first half of my degree.

    Thankyou for clearly taking a great deal of time over them and making them available for free(!).
