Today we started discussing how to describe a distribution. As an introduction, I referenced a news article from a few nights ago where the reporter faked a theft in order to do a story on eye witness accounts. The more detail you give the cops the better sketch they can produce. Similarly, the more detail we give about a distribution, the better we are able to visualize the graph and how the variable behaves. Here, students are sorting distributions by shape in order to see common patterns.
