Yet another post in my series reviewing Math Tutor DVD. In this post, you can see some samples from the Statistics and Probability DVD’s. This is a little different from most of the other DVD’s in the series. Most of the others would be just as appropriate for a high school class as a college class. While it’s true that high school classes cover some probability and statistics, most of the material here is aimed at college coursework, unless of course you are a high school student taking AP statistics. In that case, this is exactly what you need. You could probably get by just with disk one if you’re only trying to cover the basics of a high school pre-calculus class that skims the surface of probability for a chapter or so.

Probability is particularly tough for students. I have always found it a little frustrating to teach. It’s one of the few topics that even my honors students and math team students struggle with. As such, if you’re embarking on a statistics and/or probability course, you really ought to take a look at these DVD’s. Just about everyone I know had some difficulties on these topics, including myself. They can be very counterintuitive. As always, you’ll get a better price by following these links than you will on Amazon. Good luck in your class!
