• Chapter 9 – The Normal Distribution


    When students have completed this lesson they should be able to:

    • Understand the use of the normal distribution to model a continuous random variable
    • Use the normal distribution function tables accurately
    • Solve problems involving the normal distribution
    • Find a relationship between x, µ, and σ given the value of P(X > x) or its equivalent
    • Recall conditions under which the normal distribution can be used as an approximation to the binomial distribution
    • Solve problems using the normal approximation, with a continuity correction
