Statisticians investigate normal distribution in this lesson plan as they examine the area under a normal curve and use a model to find what percent of the area lies within 1,2, and 3 standard deviations of the mean. Using the TI-Nspire, they investigate an application of the normal distribution relating to the weight of each orange in a crop.

Should We Send Out a Certificate?
Fred thinks his test score is high enough to earn him a certificate. Given the mean and standard deviation, use properties of normal distributions to calculate Fred's percentile ranking and see if he is right. Consider having your class communicate their findings in a narrative form, such as a letter.
