TERMS TO KNOW
  • Uniform Distribution

    A distribution where all values are equally likely.

  • Skewed Left (Negatively Skewed) Distribution

    A distribution where the majority of values are high, and there only a few low values that form a "tail" to the left of the median.

  • Skewed Right (Positively Skewed) Distributions

    A distribution where the majority of values are low, and there only a few high values that form a "tail" to the right of the median.

  • Skewed Distribution

    A distribution where the majority of values are on one side of the distribution, and there are only a few values on the other.

  • Symmetric Distribution

    A distribution where the mean and median are the same. It will appear to have a "mirror line" at the median of the distribution.

  • Distribution

    A display of data that shows the values the data take and how often those values occur.
