 Probability & Statistics Video Series

This DVD video series consists of 60 DVDs. Each DVD is approximately 25 to 30 minutes in length. The objective of this series is to give the student a resource in probability and statistics. The approach we used is to cover all the topics of the standard two semester course in Probability and Statistics, one topic per segment. For each segment, the basic set-up and theoretical framework is reviewed and then examples are worked illustrating the theory. Word problems of a realistic nature are emphasized throughout.

The topics covered include frequency distributions, measures of central tendency of data such as the mean, and standard deviation, probability and conditional probability, random variables and expectations, binomial, normal, and Poisson distributions, confidence intervals, hypothesis tests, regression and correlation, goodness of fit, testing for normality, and analysis of variance.
