Probability and statistics on Khan Academy: We dare you to go through a day in which you never consider or use probability. Did you check the weather forecast? Busted! Did you decide to go through the drive through lane vs walk in? Busted again! We are constantly creating hypotheses, making predictions, testing, and analyzing. Our lives are full of probabilities! Statistics is related to probability because much of the data we use when determining probable outcomes comes from our understanding of statistics. In these tutorials, we will cover a range of topics, some which include: independent events, dependent probability, combinatorics, hypothesis testing, descriptive statistics, random variables, probability distributions, regression, and inferential statistics. So buckle up and hop on for a wild ride. We bet you’re going to be challenged AND love it!

About Khan Academy: Khan Academy offers practice exercises, instructional videos, and a personalized learning dashboard that empower learners to study at their own pace in and outside of the classroom. We tackle math, science, computer programming, history, art history, economics, and more. Our math missions guide learners from kindergarten to calculus using state-of-the-art, adaptive technology that identifies strengths and learning gaps. We’ve also partnered with institutions like NASA, The Museum of Modern Art, The California Academy of Sciences, and MIT to offer specialized content.

    How about you say something, stop talking, write it down, then continue the thought? Nobody talks like this. Nobody teaches like this. Hell, you could even take a couple minutes out of your–or your editor's–life to just cut out the bits where you repeat yourself 5 times while writing. It'd probably take you far below the 10 minute adsense goal, though, so I guess that's never going to happen.

    Somehow I thought that to calculate the possible outcomes from 5 flips I would have to calculate 5!. What had I calculated like that?

    Haven't done math since high school and I took the "slow kids math" when I was there because I absolutely hated math. Now im in my final year of University and had to take a geographical statistics class dealing with exactly this type of math and my god, you are a life saver. 100x better and clearer than anyone could explain to me. A good teacher is truly the most important thing on this planet. You need to be a teacher who teaches teachers. If you were my academic math teacher in high school, I would have grasped mathematics without issue.
