These are related closely to the material in Chapter 3 where we discussed variables and their distributions, frequency and relative frequency distributions. Probability distributions are essentially relative frequency distributions for populations. Why populations? While the following is probably not an exhaustive list (let me know if you think of something missing), it represents some of the important concepts in we’ve discussed in Chapter 5: Basic Probability: You should understand the basic vocabulary we used to discuss basic probability. You should be able to discuss/describe each of the following basic probability concepts and terms: 9 Experiment 9 Outcome 9 Sample Space 9 Events 9 Notation for Events 9 Using “ and ” versus “ or 9 Joint Events 9 Notation for Probability 9 Mutually Exclusive 9 Complement 9 Probability: 3 properties. 9 Classical Probability 9 Frequentist Approach to Probability 9 Subjective Probability 9 Distinguish the Union from Intersection 9 Independent Events 9 Joint Frequency Distribution 9 Joint Probability Distribution 9 Marginal Probability 9 Joint Probability 9 Conditional Probability Calculating Probabilities: 9 You should understand the concept of classical probability and be able to calculate marginal (or simple), joint and conditional
