3.14 Apply probability distributions in solving problems

This workshop uses hands-on learning experiences to explore probability distributions.  We trial some activities investigating: discrete and continuous probability distributions; mean and standard deviation of random variables; distribution of true probabilities versus distribution of model estimates of probabilities versus distribution of experimental estimates of probabilities.
