## Module Overview

Many inferential procedures assume that variable(s) under study follow a **normal distribution** in the population. In this module we will study properties of this distribution and learn how to calculate important measures that would be useful later in inference.

**Learning Objectives**:

- Understand the properties of a normal distribution, the graph of its density function, interpret areas enclosed by a normal curve over an interval, percentiles
- Learn and apply 68-95-99.7 Empirical Rule
- Standard normal distribution, z-scores and standard normal table
- Compute areas under the normal curve and interpret the results
- Compute percentiles and interpret the results
- Calculate cut-off values of the variable to cover
**middle p%**of the distribution - How normal is a population distribution - Learn how to infer that the population distribution of the variable is normal – set up hypothesis, use normal probability plot, Anderson-Darling normality test, interpret p-value of the test
