I am going to see my professor tomorrow during his office hours, but I am trying to do my homework tonight. And I'm a little lost. I missed the class where he discussed Poisson probability and Hypergeometric probability. The person I got the notes from didn't understand the class, so didn't take very good notes.

Does anyone here understand these issues? Thanks!

Thanks everyone for your support. I took the final a week ago and just got the results back yesterday. I guess I understood more than I thought because I got an 'A' on the test. And an 'A' in the class. Yay me!... to quote London Tipton, lol.

I'm taking the math one, I guess. It's all about probabilities and surveys, etc. And, yes, I'm still having problems with hypergeometric and Poisson. My final is next Monday, so hopefully I can figure this stuff out by then.

Is statistics hard? I was always sorta poor with maths. Though to be a psychologist I am going to have to learn this sadly :(

Depends on what kind of statistics class your taking. There is math statistics and psychological statistics classes..

My son could probably help. He is a math wiz. He had stat in high school. i could ask him if he knows anything about Poisson probability and hepergeometric probabilty. Do you still need help?

I am currently taking a stats class, but we didn't do anything like that. Sorry. I feel completely lost in my class too.

Good Luck

I took statistics a long time ago. Sorry I don't remember those topics. But I sympathize with you.
