Descriptive Statistics and Probability Distributions

By Ward Nickle, Humboldt State University

This resource contains interactive MATLAB live scripts centered around the fundamentals of descriptive statistics and some commonly used probability distributions. The three live scripts are:

  • Descriptive Statistics
  • Discrete Distributions
  • Continuous Distributions

These materials are designed to be flexible and easily modified to accommodate a variety of teaching and learning methods. Used in a sequence, the live scripts progressively add depth to the topic. However, each script can be easily adapted for standalone use. They include a brief background, interactive illustrations, tasks, reflection questions, and example problems for the different concepts explored.

Learning goals for the individual scripts can be found in the courseware description and readme document within the zip folder.
