Description: 
In this activity, students explore the normal distribution and several of its most interesting properties. First, they use a histogram of data from a binomial experiment to examine the general shape of a normal curve. Then, they use a dynamic illustration to make observations, using sliders to change the mean and standard deviation. Last, they examine the empirical rule for normal distributions, describing the percent of data values falling within different standard deviations from the mean.
