Day 17: Just another Normal day

20140926_155905

Today, we did a Normal distribution foldable in my AP Stats class covering the Normal curve including the Empirical Rule.   There are so many foldables for the core classes: Algebra 1, Geometry and Algebra 2, but very sparse for the upper level classes.  So, I try to develop at least one foldable per chapter to cover critical content and most of my students do find them helpful – yay!  It is really interesting to me what spatial abilities (or lack of) my students have; it was hard for many of them to figure out how to fold out the area portions and then glue into their notebooks…a new learning in and of itself, huh?  Part of the foldable covered the standard normal curve and many of the characteristics and for the students having had Calculus, they got the equation for the standard Normal curve.
