    Abstract

    One of the strengths of a graphics calculator is the potential it offers for students to explore mathematical ideas from a few different perspectives. A good example of this involves the normal probability distribution, frequently encountered in senior secondary courses involving statistics. This note describes a few ways in which the Casio cfx-9850G series of calculators can be used to evaluate normal probabilities.
