The Geometric Probability Model

The Geometric Probability Model

Author: Al Greene

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

This packet shows you the Geometric probability model, its mean, standard deviation, and formula for computing probabilities. There is a powerpoint with definitions, a video of examples, and examples for you to do on your own.
