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 difficult is the proof for the CLT? What level of math is needed to follow it?

Wow

I literally calculated the area of universe at a particular time by this methodology

please, can any one tell me how like these videos manufactured ??

Love this Khan guy he breaks it down so well.

Thank you ALOT??..I was completely lost before this video

For the negative kurtosis example are the tails supposed to reach zero? Shouldnt they go on to infinity like the normal distribution and positive kurtosis?

"Skew is where there's few"

At 7:25, positive kurtosis should not look like that. it's tail should lower than normal on both side.

The peak of negative kurtosis should not taller than normal.

finally, a video about this that makes sense!

its fking clear! Thanks

watching these at 5AM the morning of your statistics midterm at university is the best

KHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAN

HOLY SHIT. The first 3 minutes of this video just BLEW. MY. MIND. Everything is so clear now.

nice drawings 7.29

she's so great!

thank you 🙂 a slow student like me needs a patient tutor like you. thanks for helping me to understand

Thanks!I FINALLY understood!!

Thanks

Thanks, it was nice to have a break from reading, yet not feel guilty about procrastinating.

skews are poopy like tails
