Unit 5 Lesson 1 – Empirical Rule Practice
Name: __________________________
Date: ____________ Period: _______
For each of the dot plots below, use the Empirical Rule to estimate the mean and the standard deviation of each of
the following distributions. Then, use your calculator to determine the mean and standard deviation of each of the
distributions.
Did the empirical rule give you a good estimate of the standard deviation?

Now that you know what the actual mean and standard deviation, calculate one standard deviation below the mean and
one standard deviation above the mean.

7. For which distributions did you give a good estimate of the standard deviation based on the empirical rule?
8. Which distributions did not give a good estimate of the standard deviation based on the empirical rule?
9. Which distributions had close to 68% of the data within one standard deviation of the mean? What do they have
in common?
10. For which type of distributions do you think the Empirical rule applies? (Describe the shape of the graph.)
As you discovered, the empirical rule does not work unless your data is bell-shaped. However, not all bell-shaped
graphs are normal. The next two dot plots are bell-shaped graphs. You will apply the empirical rule to determine if
the bell-shaped graph is normal or not.
