MDM4U Normal distribution and Z-scores; tomorrow’s work too 2016-05-11


We started to talk about the normal distribution today. This is a continuous distribution defined by two values: the mean and the standard deviation.

We learned about how to calculate z-scores for specific data values. Tomorrow we’re going to practice that skill, and we’re going to extend it further to solve problems.

Want a preview? Here’s what we did today along with tomorrow’s learning. Let me know if you see any boo-boos in my work.

Quartiles, Percentiles, and Z-Scores

I’ll post tomorrow’s practice work after class.
