The Bell Curve

Lecture no. 6 from the course: Meaning from Data: Statistics Made Clear

The Bell Curve

Taught by Professor Michael Starbird | 31 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Mathematics Courses

The most famous shape of distributions is the bell-shaped curve, also called a normal curve or a Gaussian distribution. This lecture explores its properties and why it arises so frequently—as in the central limit theorem, one of the core insights on which statistical inference is based.

The visual explanation of the central limit theorem using playing cards alone makes this lesson 5 stars for me.
