View the content: Discrete Random Variables: Lab II

 Name: Discrete Random Variables: Lab II ID: m16826 Language: English (en) Summary: This module allows students to apply concepts related to discrete distributions to a simple dice experiment. Students will compare empirical data and a theoretical distribution to determine if the game fits a discrete distribution. This experiment involves the concept of long-term probabilities.
