X 2 ~ The Normal Distribution ~ (a.k.a. “The Bell Curve”) Johann Carl Friedrich Gauss 1777-1855 μ σ mean standard deviation X ~ N( μ, σ ) Symmetric, unimodal Models many (but not all) natural systems Mathematical properties make it useful to work with

Standard Normal Distribution Z ~ Z ~ N(0, 1) Z The cumulative distribution function (cdf) is denoted by ( z ). It is tabulated, and computable in R via the command pnorm. SPECIAL CASE Total Area = 1 1

Standard Normal Distribution Z ~ Z ~ N(0, 1) Z μ σ X ~ N( μ, σ ) 1 Any normal distribution can be transformed to the standard normal distribution via a simple change of variable. Why be concerned about this, when most “bell curves” don’t have mean = 0, and standard deviation = 1?

Year 2010 X ~ N(25.4, 1.5) σ = 1.5 μ =μ = 33 The x-score = 27.2 must first be transformed to a corresponding z-score. μ = 25.4 27.2

23 continuousdiscrete Suppose a certain outcome exists in a population, with constant probability . P(Success) = P(Failure) = 1 – We will randomly select a random sample of n individuals, so that the binary “Success vs. Failure” outcome of any individual is independent of the binary outcome of any other individual, i.e., n Bernoulli trials (e.g., coin tosses). Discrete random variable X = # Successes in sample (0, 1, 2, 3, …,, n) Discrete random variable X = # Successes in sample (0, 1, 2, 3, …,, n) Then X is said to follow a Binomial distribution, written X ~ Bin(n, ), with “probability function” f(x) =, x = 0, 1, 2, …, n.
