The Binomial Probability Model

The Binomial Probability Model

Author: Al Greene

- Review Bernoulli Trials
- Demonstrate how to use the binomial probability model to calculate expected value (mean), standard deviation, and probability
- Review the assumptions and conditions that are necessary for using a binomial probability model

This packet introduces you to the binomial probability model, which is a combination of Bernoulli trials. We talk about the mean, standard deviation, and probability formula. There is a powerpoint of definitions, a video of examples, and examples for you to do on your own.
