Practical Applications of the Bell Shaped Curve

Practical Applications of the Bell Shaped Curve

Author: Samsam Warsame

In this learning packet you will learn new terms and definitions, how to identify a bell-shape curve from a normal curve, and examples of when the bell-shaped curve is used in real life (hint-grading).


At this point, since you have been exposed to such topics like standard deviation and empirical rule, you will now learn about a few terms, such as standard z-score, standard normal distribution, and continuous random variable.

Please note that the Z-Score Table that is used in this packet is a 2 tailed table.
