# Ch 5: Discrete Probability Distributions: Tutoring Solution

The Discrete Probability Distributions chapter of this Statistics Tutoring Solution is a flexible and affordable path to learning about discrete probability distributions. These simple and fun video lessons are each about five minutes long and they teach all of the concepts associated with discrete probability distributions required in a typical statistics course.

## How it works:

• Begin your assignment or other statistics work.
• Identify the discrete probability distributions concepts that you're stuck on.
• Find fun videos on the topics you need to understand.
• Press play, watch and learn!
• Complete the quizzes to test your understanding.
• As needed, submit a question to one of our instructors for personalized support.

## Who's it for?

This chapter of our statistics tutoring solution will benefit any student who is trying to learn about discrete probability distributions and earn better grades. This resource can help students including those who:

• Struggle with expected values, binomial probabilities, game strategies or any other discrete probability distributions topic
• Have limited time for studying
• Want a cost effective way to supplement their statistics learning
• Prefer learning statistics visually
• Find themselves failing or close to failing their discrete probability distributions unit
• Want to get ahead in statistics

## Why it works:

• Engaging Tutors: We make learning discrete probability distributions simple and fun.
• Cost Efficient: For less than 20% of the cost of a private tutor, you'll have unlimited access 24/7.
• Consistent High Quality: Unlike a live statistics tutor, these video lessons are thoroughly reviewed.
• Convenient: Imagine a tutor as portable as your laptop, tablet or smartphone. Learn about discrete probability distributions on the go!
• Learn at Your Pace: You can pause and rewatch lessons as often as you'd like, until you master the material.
