Adding random variables

What turns into what?

Here are the haikus that the Fall 2017 Math 137 students have permitted me to share.

Line up some puppies

Oh no, a permutation!

I like stat better

Prob. was the fun part

Much like winter, which feels like

Refrigerator

If I don't study

For actuary exams

Franklin will be mad

Probability!

Thank you for teaching me so

Much. You are the best!

Probability

At which I am horrible

Have mercy on me

~~~~~~

What I learned this fall.

Pdf's and cdf's.

And some statistics.

Sloths, axolotls,

And don't forget the quokkas.

See you in the spring.

~~~~~~

Probability

Too many distributions

Random walk is fun

Probability

Hofstra's most useful math class

Won't be forgotten

Probability...

Will I take one thirty-eight?

You shall wait and see.

Box and whisker plots

Are used to find outliers

Using the quartiles

Solving stat problems

Is spectacular and fun

Study thoroughly

Must pass Exam P

If I don't, how sad I'll be

Franklin please help me

This is statistics

Find confidence intervals

Tables help a lot

Linear regression

Made no sense last semester—

It makes more sense now!

I have cried so much

I have slept in prob and stats

Don't know what to do.

Heart, spade, club, diamond

Chance of getting a red club?

Zero! Can't happen!

Probability

Stats, how to find beta hat?

Poisson is a fish.

Probability

What is the expected value

That I get an A?

Johanna Franklin

Knows an awful lot about

Bad monster movies

A distribution,

Most likely the normal one,

Will be used today

School is 5 months long

Each day we learn math is fun

Probability

Some distributions

Death by horse kick statistics

We learned confidence

~~~~~~

Probability

Wow, that had five syllables

I now know those odds

That was too easy

Completely not like this class

I will write one more

*n* equals thirty

Is a large enough sample

For life to work out

~~~~~~

Real world tests go wrong

Bayes Theorem finds skewed errors

Now we can correct

~~~~~~

Probability

Although not my favorite

Franklin made it fun

Probability

Statistics are my life now

Glad the end is near

Probability

Hopefully of me passing

Is equal to one

~~~~~~

Probs and statistics

Taught me the prob mass functions

Franklin is the best

Poison is Poisson.

σ^{2} and μ are equal.

Happy when it's gone.

I will refrain from subjecting

You to something most likely worse

Than Vogon poetry
