Continuous Random Variables: Introduction is part of the collection col10555 written by Barbara Illowsky and Susan Dean and serves as an introduction to the uniform and exponential distributions […]
Discrete Random Variables: Mean or Expected Value and Standard Deviation
This module explores the Law of Large Numbers, the phenomenon where an experiment performed many times will yield cumulative results closer and closer to the theoretical mean over time.

Algebra 1 - Simplifying Radical Expressions
We learn the rules for simplifying radical expressions: 1) no perfect squares; 2) no fractions in radicand; 3) no radicals in denominator. We also learn that when adding or subtraction, we can treat a radical the same way we treat a variable.
Why can't we see ALL the stars?
Justin Higgins overviews why we cannot see all the Stars. Emphasis is on the vocabulary terms: Light Pollution and Interstellar Medium (Dust). Why we cannot see all the stars from the surface of Earth due to Light Pollution, both human made and natural. Second, that we cannot see with the naked eye deeply into the light coming out of the Milky Way.
Faculty Forum Online: The Strange New Worlds of Exoplanets
The study of exoplanets—planets outside the solar system that orbit distant stars—can be portrayed as a single-minded quest for habitable, Earth-like planets. But the most remarkable discoveries have been exoplanets with unanticipated properties that can make habitation impossible. In the first Faculty Forum Online of 2014, Associate Professor Joshua Winn ’94, SM ’94, PhD ’01 described these new worlds—and shared research discoveries about the formation and evolution of planets.

No Clowning Around: Juggling Study Shows How Senses Help Us Run
Juggling may sound like mere entertainment, but a study led by Johns Hopkins engineers has used this circus skill to gather critical clues about how vision and the sense of touch help control the way humans and animals move their limbs in a repetitive way, such as in running. The findings eventually may aid in the treatment of people with neurological diseases and could lead to prosthetic limbs and robots that move more efficiently. The study was published online recently by the Journal of Neu

Battling Drug-Resistant Superbugs: Can We Win? | The Forum at HSPH
The CDC estimates that at least 2 million people become infected with antibiotic-resistant bacteria each year and at least 23,000 people die annually from these infections. Additional risks are posed from other types of organisms once sensitive to antimicrobial medicines and now resistant. This Forum event examined the public health menace posed by antimicrobial resistance and the steps to be undertaken to fight the "superbugs." Presented by The Forum at Harvard School of Public Health in colla

Green Roof Redesign
West Michigan Sustainable Business Forum presents the redesign of Tom and Julie Newhouse's 35-year-old green roof, earning it National Wildlife Federation certification as a wildlife habitat.
Sustainable Business Forum: the 4th Wave
Andrew Hoffman of the University of Michigan's Erb Institute discusses the implications of an emerging cultural shift to sustainable business, the necessity of "dark greens" and "light greens," the waning meaning of environmental rhetoric, and the difficulties of forming a social consensus around climate change. He believes that conceptions of sustainability are presently based on traditional notions of business strategy and eco-efficiency, defined by existing routines and processes. But the not
How Three Geos are Rewriting the World Map
Cleo Paskal presents on how geopolitical, geo-economic and geophysical changes are combining to redefine the globe. Part of the World Affairs Great Decisions lecture series, this presentation covers how the reverberating implications of the financial crisis are combining with, and influencing, the political shift towards Asia and massive environmental change (including climate change, demographic shifts, urbanization, and more). This triple whammy of geo-economics, geopolitical and geophysical
