Review of chapter 7:
Binomial distribution explained on video

Example 1
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xNLQuuvE9ug

Example 2
http://www.khanacademy.org/video/binomial-distribution-1?playlist=Statistics

Geometric Probability

Example - keep in mind that the probabilities are independent since we are replacing the cards
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=INvbj5LKZKc

Hypergeometric Probability

Example - notice that the notation for nCr is slightly different than we are using.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pkk7hjmgVos

Expected Value

Example - good straightforward example of the definition of expected value
