Another expected student learning outcome for the course is Construct a probability distribution for a discrete random variable, which was a big part of Module 2 activity 2. I actually enjoyed Module 2. Statistics seems a lot more interesting when you are not worrying about group projects. While I do not think that I will aver sit down and write a
