Weekend Wiki Party 4 - Probability

If you want to get a sense of community participation in wikis, take a look at wiki collaboration graph.

The Brilliant "Weekend Wiki Party" has been an ongoing project over the past several weeks. As a community, we've had hundreds of edits to wiki pages during these wiki parties and we've helped thousands of people learn about new math ideas! This week's theme: PROBABILITY.

Our goal this weekend is to fill out and improve some of our Probability wikis. With everyone’s help, we can make these pages something that the community is proud of. To participate, feel free to jump in and write something helpful on one of the following (currently empty) pages:

If you'd rather improve an existing page, the following pages would benefit from additional explanation and more examples:

When you have made an edit that you are proud of, please make a comment and let us know!

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

  • Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
  • Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
  • Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.
  • Stay on topic — we're all here to learn more about math and science, not to hear about your favorite get-rich-quick scheme or current world events.

I have brought a copy of the Classic Book, "Hall and Knight, Higher Algebra". It has a lot of information about many types and fields of Probability. As a ninth grader, I have Probability as a chapter in my syllabus. I'll try my best to fill up one of the wikis!

I'll try the Probability by Complement Wiki.

@Sharky Kesa Should we ask Calvin Sir if he could get back the lost data?

@Ishan Dasgupta Samarendra No, it wouldn't work. You'd have to retype everything.

@Sharky Kesa OK, then let's leave it...

I did some work on Conditional Probability Distribution. Is it enough?

Thanks Sharky. This looks great.
