Today is a continuation of Thursday's work on the correlation coefficient.
Normal Distribution Quiz
Today will be a quiz about calculating probabilities from normal distributions. You will do this using the 68%, 95%, 99.7% rule, the Standard Z-Score table (use your own). You will not be using technology for this one.
After the quiz you will be finishing your work with the hand-span correlation activity that we started yesterday. You will finish the data collection and use your computer or a Chromebook to do the work.
Today we are going to do a couple of activities that will result in us analyzing a variety of games and skills.
There is a short quiz today on calculating standard deviations, z-scores, percent spread, etc. by hand from a small set of data.
Calculating Probabilities using Technology
Today we are continuing with our work from the previous day and learning how to use wolfram alpha to also do the computations.
Today is a work period for working with and calculating probabilities when data is normally distributed.
Z-Scores, Percentiles and the Z-Score table
Common Types of Distributions
Today we will look at and graph 4 common distribution types.
The Normal Distribution - 68%, 95%, 99.7% Rule
Using the rule to solve simple problems. In the example below and the graphic to the right we are using sample means, x-bar and sample standard deviations, s.
Sorry, no classes today. We will continue along tomorrow.
