Discuss with Your Colleagues: It's All in the Area

J. Lee 

November 1999, Volume 92, Issue 8, Page 670

Abstract:
Examples and questions to help students understand the connection between the area under curves and samples, histograms, and various other indicators to which they have been exposed. The questions begin with the intuitive nature of empirical probabilities and progress from the frequencies to proportions, proportions to probabilities, and finally the ratio of areas in frequency charts to probabilities.
