t Distribution Demonstration
Read the instructions and watch the video to see how the degrees of freedom affect the difference between t and normal distributions.
- State the difference between the shape of the t distribution and the shape of the normal distribution.
- State how the degrees of freedom affect the difference between the t and normal distributions.
This demonstration allows you to compare the
In the video the slider is used to increase the degrees of freedom. Notice how the t-distribution change as the degrees of freedom increase. The video concludes with the tails of the tails of the graphs being zoomed into via the "zoom in" button and the degrees of freedom being decreased.
