Week 3: 9/5­9/11  Statistics  Chapter 2: Summarizing Data in Tables and Graphs  Section 2: Organize Discrete and Continuous Data      Shapes of distribution  ● When describing a distribution one must pay attention to its shape, center, and  spread                                    Uniform Distribution:         Bell­shaped Distribution      ● These two shapes are considered to be symmetrical            Week 3: 9/5­9/11  Skewed Right Distribution          Skewed Left Distribution      ● Wherever the tail (thinner part) is on the graph is the direction the graph is  skewed  ● Peaks in graphs are called modes  ● There are unimodals, bimodals, and multimodals                         Week 3: 9/5­9/11      Example of modes:    Unimodal       Bimodal      Multimodal                          Week 3: 9/5­9/11  Statistics  Chapter 5: Probability  Sections 1­4      Definitions  ● Experiment: an act or process of observation that leads to a single outcome that  cannot be predicted with certainty  ● Sample Space: (S), the collection of all possible outcomes  ● Event: (E) any collection of outcomes from a probability experiment  ● Simple event: (e) events with one outcome    Intro  ● Probability is the measure of the likelihood of a random phenomenon  (experiment) or chance behavior   ● Probability describes the long­term proportion with which a certain outcome will  occur in situations with short­term uncertainty  ● Deals with experiments that yield random short­term results or outcomes, yet  reveal long­term predictability    Event Example    Sample space: S= (HT), (HH), (TT), (TH)    Event  Outcomes in Event  1 head and 1 tail  (HT), (TH)  Head on 1st coin  (HT), (HH)  At least 1 head  (HT), (HH), (TH)  Heads on both  (HH)            Week 3: 9/5­9/11  Probability Model  Rules…  1. Probability Event, P(E), must be greater than or equal to 0 and less than or equal  to 1  2. Sum of the probabilities of all outcomes must equal 1    Example of a Probability Model…    Color  Probability  Brown  0.12  Yellow  0.15  Red  0.12  Blue  0.23  Orange   0.23  Green  0.15
