Variance, and the skew—

Wait just a moment!

Here are the haikus that the Math 3160-005 students have permitted me to share. It's very useful that "probability" has five syllables!

Probability:

Umbrella saves mu from rain

Lighten your darkness!

Probability

Chance of getting right answer

must be less than one.

Fifteen choose fifteen

Is the probability

I have learned something.

Oh variables

Continuous and discrete

Make me so upbeat

Probability

Pray the coins and dice are fair

Ask which Bernoulli

Is this on the P?

He would not cease asking me

Is this on the P?

Is it less than 1?

Is it greater than 0?

Then it's probable.

With some luck you'll win

But I expect you won't

The long run is mine.

Distributing joints

Is easy with a table.

Make sure you're discrete.

If we multiply

And our condition's the same

We're independent.

Bernoulli's but one

Son of a binomial

But, which Bernoulli?

Whenever I cook

After doing math homework

It's food Poissoning.
