Unit 2: Week 2 (Aug 21 - Aug 29)   Overview:  This week is you will start to learn inferential statistics by studying probability distributions of discrete and continuous distributions. The  concept of probability is central to a discussion on inferential statistics. This week, the focus will be on continuous probabilities and  discrete probabilities. A probability distribution provides the likelihood of an outcome from all possible outcomes. A random variable is a  numerical description of an outcome of an experiment. A discrete random variable is a variable which is countable and no fractional  units. If the variable is an interval or a collection of intervals, it is considered a continuous random variable. Outcomes which can be  described by measurement scales such as time, weight, distance, temperature, etc. are considered continuous. That is, a continuous
