### Cambridge Pre-U Math Short Course: Binomial Distribution Chapter Objectives

As you complete this chapter, you could be able to apply the binomial distribution formula and be capable of solving problems involving discrete random variables and the standard deviation of X on the end-of-course exam for the Cambridge Pre-U Math Short Course. Paper 1 of the written assessment is called *Pure Mathematics.* It has 65 questions and measures 45% of the test weighting. One hour and 45 minutes are allowed for completion of this component. You'll find math questions that reflect this chapter's material on the assessment's Paper 2 component. Named, *Statistics,* the two-hour section is worth 55% of the weighting and consists of 80 questions.

### 1. Binomial Experiments: Definition, Characteristics & Examples

Binomial experiments happen in your everyday life far more often than you might think. In this lesson, you will learn the characteristics of binomial experiments that will help you identify them.

### 2. Finding Binomial Probabilities Using Formulas: Process & Examples

You can find the probability of getting a certain number of successes when conducting a binomial experiment. In this lesson, you will learn how to find this information using the binomial probabilities formula.

### 3. Practice Problems for Finding Binomial Probabilities Using Formulas

In this lesson, you will review the binomial probability formula and the combination formula. Then follow along with the practice problems and see if you've mastered these concepts!

### 4. Finding Binomial Probabilities Using Tables

A binomial probability table can look intimidating to use. However, it can make your life a lot easier when trying to figure out binomial probabilities. This lesson will teach you how to read those tables.

### 5. Mean & Standard Deviation of a Binomial Random Variable: Formula & Example

When working with binomial random variables and experiments, it is important to understand the mean and standard deviation. In this lesson, you will learn how to analyze binomial experiments using the mean and standard deviation of a binomial random variable.

### 6. Solving Problems with Binomial Experiments: Steps & Example

Sometimes when conducting research you will need to use binomial experiments to solve problems. In this lesson, you will learn about binomial experiments and how to use probability to solve problems.
