Finite Sampling Models

Created by Kyle Siegrist of the University of Alabama-Huntsville, this is an online, interactive lesson on finite sampling models. The lesson provides examples, exercises, and applets that include hypergeometric distribution, multivariate hypergeometric distribution, order statistics, the matching problem, the birthday problem, and the coupon collector problem. This is the twelfth of seventeen different lessons created by Siegrist. This site is structured much like an online textbook.
