A z-score measures a data point's location by showing exactly how many standard deviations away from the mean the data point is.

Normal distributions are the most fundamental family of distributions in all of statistics. You'll learn how to calculate area in a normal curve to find what percent of data falls where in the distribution. You'll also have the opportunity to go deeper with simulations that show how normal distributions really work.
