Quiz 4, Basics of Discrete Random Variables
For all Tuesday recitation sections of lecture section 001 (Thursday afternoon
lecture), Quiz 4 will be given at the beginning of recitation on
Tuesday,
November 2
.
The quiz will be based on my PowerPoint slide sets that I presented
in lecture.
Quiz 4 will be timed; only 20 minutes will be allowed.
Time is of the essence, so
work carefully but quickly.
Quiz 4 will cover the basic concepts of discrete random variables, specifically,
discrete probability distributions, the addition rule, expected value, variance and
standard deviation, and threshold probabilities (e.g., the probability of more or less
than expected).
In the context of the given problem, you will be asked about these
concepts and to apply them to calculate the numerical values of the probabilities
asked and the numerical values for the expected value, etc.
From the textbook, Quiz 4 will cover sections 5.1 to 5.3, inclusive, from Chapter
5.
Note that sections 5.1 and 5.2 just restate Chapter 4 in the language of random
