Description:

Students are given the following situation: It is generally accepted that the mean body temperature is 98.6 degrees. If a sample of size 100 resulted in a sample mean of 98.3 degrees with a standard deviation of 0.64 degrees. Does this sample suggest that the mean body temperature is actually lower than 98.6 degrees? Using minitab, students generate 10 sets of 100 data values from a normal distribution with a mean of 98.6 and a standard deviation of 0.64.

Students will then answer a variety of probability and area questions based on normal distribution graphs.

Student Learning Outcome:

  • The student will compare and contrast empirical data and a theoretical distribution.
  • Find Probabilities for specific Normal Distributions
