Looking Back Looking Ahead

*Record multiple observations (or simulated samples) of random events and construct empirical models of the probability distributions. (MA.AII.DSP.4) & (MA.AA.DSP.5)

*Construct a theoretical model and apply the law of large numbers to show the relationship between the two models. (MA.AII.DSP.4)

*This course is a 4th year course in the Indiana sequence. The concepts and skills within the course extend to multiple post-secondary pathways and applications.
