### Exam Content

- Properties of Probability
- Conditional Probability
- Bayes’ Theorem
- Independent Events
- Methods of Enumeration (Counting)
- Random Variables (Discrete) - Expectation, Mean, Variance & Standard Deviation
- Binomial Distribution
- Geometric and Negative Binomial Distributions
- Hypergeometric and Multinomial Distributions
- Poisson Distribution
- Moment Generating Function
- Continuous Random Variables
- Normal Distribution

### Materials Needed

- Scratch papers and writing utensil.
**R and RStudio installed on your computer.****Calculator**. A graphing calculator is useful but not necessary. Your calculator should be able to perform:- Combinations.
- Exponents.
- Logarithms.
- Etc.

**One 8.5" x 11" sheet with notes**.- You may use both sides.
- You may write whatever you please.
- You may type and print your notes sheet.

### Academic Integrity

In short, **don’t cheat**. Any violation will be punished as harshly as possible.

### Frequently Asked Questions

*How many problems are on the exam?*

- This question is irrelevant since each problem could have an arbitrary number of parts. A one problem exam could easily be written to be longer than a ten problem exam.

*How long will it take to do the exam?*

- If you are well prepared and manage your time efficiently: Under 110 minutes.
- If you are ill prepared or manage your time poorly: Over 110 minutes.
- You should not focus on this. Focus on practicing and being able to do questions of the types you’ve seen on homework. Let me worry about this. And believe me, I worry about this a lot.

*Will the exam be curved?*

- No.

*We got our grades back, now will the exam be curved?*

- No. Unless you want it to curved to a normal distribution with a mean of 75. In which, case, sure, that would make my life easier.
