You should have an understanding the mean and standard deviation.
You should be familiar with z scores.
You should know how to use a z table or a computer program to find probabilities on a normal distribution.
What should I expect?
z table or converter. You may use either your own table for the standardized normal distribution (z) or the WISE p–z converter provided by this tutorial.
Hints and answers. You will be asked to answer questions along the way. Approximate answers and hints are provided so you can check your work. Detailed solutions are available, but you should try to answer the questions on your own before consulting the detailed solutions. You will learn much more by doing the exercise questions yourself than if you merely read them and the answers.
Review and follow-up. After completing exercise, you may complete the interactive review questions and also download and answer the follow-up questions.
