# Lesson Plan: Continuous Random Variables Mathematics

This lesson plan includes the objectives, prerequisites, and exclusions of the lesson teaching students how to describe the probability density function of a continuous random variable and use it to find the probability for some event.

#### Objectives

Students will be able to

• understand the probability density function of a continuous random variable,
• use the probability density function of a continuous random variable to find the probability of some event
• using integration,
• graphically.

#### Prerequisites

Students should already be familiar with

• continuous random variables,
• piecewise defined functions,
• integration.

#### Exclusions

Students will not cover

• discrete random variables,
• probability function of continuous random variables that follow specific distribution:
• normal distribution,
• Student’s -distribution,
• exponential distributions.
