Graphs help statisticians to visualize data. But not all graphs are created equally. Different situations call for different depictions of data. Learn more about seven of the most common graphs in statistics, and when you should use them.

Learn more about the beginnings of probability when Pascal and Fermat teamed up to solve a problem involving dice.

Maclaurin Series use the derivatives of a function as coefficients in a power series. They can be used for a number of applications.

See how to use the moment generating function to calculate the mean and variance of a binomial distribution.

One of the origins of probability stems from when Luca Pacioli posed a mathematical question regarding a game of chance.

There is an easy test to determine if a geometric series converges. We also see a formula for determining the value of a convergent geometric series.

There are two types of convergence. Find out the difference between absolutely and conditionally convergent series.

The harmonic series is counterintuitive in that it diverges although its terms seem to decrease quickly enough for the series to diverge. See a proof of why this series diverges.

There are a number of convergence tests when working with infinite series. A simple one of these tests is used for a p-series.
