Describing distributions ; Normal distributions by
Dirk Wassenaar(
Visual
)
26 editions published between 1988 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Describing distributions deals with numerical measures of specific aspects of distribution, such as center (mean, median), spread (percentiles, boxplots, standard deviation), and resistance. Normal distributions covers density curves as smoothed histograms (mean, median, percentiles for density curves) and normal distributions (locating the mean and standard deviation, the 689599.7 rule). Uses animated graphics, onlocation footage, and interviews

Mathematics : modeling our world(
Book
)
13 editions published between 1998 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The authors of this text demonstrate using mathematical concepts to solve truly interesting problems about how our world works. Mathematical modeling is the process of looking at a problem, finding a mathematical core, working within that core, and coming back to see what mathematics tells you about the problem. Real problems ask such questions as: How do we create computer animations? Where should we locate a fire station? How do we effectively control an animal population? This approach integrates a mix of ideas in geometry, algebra, and data analysis with technologies of computers and graphing calculators
