The Normal Distribution

img_2915Nature’s variations are somewhat formal

In mathematical terms, this is quite normal

Populations differ in similar ways

Pleasing to a statistician’s gaze

 

Organic aspects of our nations

Conform to standard deviations

Few data lie at each extreme

Most in the middle around the mean

 

Four quartiles cover the distribution

Analysis providing the whole solution

A bell curve puts the facts in order

Arranged beneath a symmetrical border
