Probability and Sampling Distributions

  • Graphically Assessing Normality (Activity 4)

    Investigate whether data are normal using the 68-95-99.7 rule and the normality quantile plot.

  • Geometric Probability (Activity 6)

    Simulate data from a geometric probability distribution using the formula editor in JMP. In particular, simulate the number of rolls of a fair die until a 1 appears.

  • Sampling Variation (Activity 7)

    Compare the distributions of the sample mean from samples of size 50 and samples of size 10, and investigate how each distribution is related to the entire population.
