 Name: Discrete Random Variables: Lab I (edited: Teegarden) ID: m17336 Language: English (en) Summary: This module allows students to explore concepts related to discrete random variables through the use of a simple playing card experiment. Students will compare empirical data to a theoretical distribution to determine if the experiment fist a discrete distribution. This lab involves the concept of long-term probabilities. Labs changed to incorporate mini-tabs.
