What comes to mind when you think about the bell curve in statistics?

2. Slide

60 seconds

Normal distribution is a probability distribution with a bell-shaped curve. It is used to describe the behavior of many physical and social phenomena. The mean, median and mode of the distribution are all equal.

Normal Distribution

Mean: The average value of a set of numbers which is calculated by adding the numbers together and dividing the total by the number of items in the set. Standard Deviation: A measure of how spread out the values of a set of numbers are from each other and from the mean. It is calculated by taking the square root of the variance. Normal Distribution: A type of probability distribution where the values fall in a symmetric pattern with the mean, median and mode being equal and most values clustering around the mean.

The normal distribution is sometimes referred to as the Bell Curve because of its appearance on a graph. The normal distribution can be used to predict the probability of certain events occurring. The normal distribution is used in many areas of science and engineering, including quantum mechanics and weather forecasting.

Question: You are a scientist trying to explain normal distribution to 12th grade students. How would you help them understand normal distribution? Clues: • Normal distribution is a probability distribution that is symmetric around its mean. • It is also known as the Gaussian distribution or bell curve. • It describes the probability of a given set of data being within a certain range. In pairs: Select and solve one of the tasks: A. Draw a picture of a normal distribution graph to help students understand the concept. B. Create a role-play to demonstrate the concept of a normal distribution.
