Welcome aboard! I remember the good old day when I was a math major. Which math course(s) are you currently studying?

Hi, I live in America and just a small percentage of students study Calculus 1 (derivatives) and even less, much less, study Calculus 2 (integral calculus) in high school. In the university the failure rate for students who take calculus is quite high. In my opinion, the USA does not have an educational system prior to college. We have decent colleges and probably the best graduate programs in the world. The sad part is that many americans with a college degree in math are ill prepared to finish a PhD program in math

What could lead you to say such a thing! (3-min video)

I encourage you to watch 'till the end; see how smart they are. I could not answer those last three questions myself!!

no Jomo dont say that, your country educational system is good at least better than my country you dont know how awful schools we have that we study it. we are studying on our own & no one cares about they all care about money. but in my country we study Integral & Derivatives in high school which is too heavy for 16-17 year old boy.

these are our books ...

I have seen country where the students do not have any textbooks, yet these students come to america and earn PhDs with little difficulty. I consider myself bright, yet I was so ill prepared for the PhD math program I entered and flunked out of. My statement is not about me. I taught (retired now) math at a community college and we (as well as all other community colleges)offered 30 sections of arithmetic (4th grade level math and these students graduated high school), 20 sections of algebra, 10 sections of advanced algebra, 3 sections of pre calculus, 2 sections of calculus 1. And most of the students in calculus 1 did not start there when they came to the college.

Normal Distribution

Hello everyone I am a new member and i'm just looking for help concerning Binomial distribution, I am from Kiribati and currently a senior in High school and at the end of this year there will be an exam for a fund in the University of the South Pacific and that's scares me especially Statistics which I usually failed. We have gone through Probability with our Teacher on Conditional events, Mutually exclusive, complement, Dependent and Independent events and also Binomial distribution. On normal distribution it is hard to me to read z-value table that is normally my mistake.
