Storyboard Text

  • Carl Friedrich Gauss was born in April 30 1777 , at braunschweig Germany, according to http://www.math.wichita.edu/history/men/gauss.html "Gauss was born in Brunswick, Germany, on April 30, 1777"
  • Carl was born to a poor family sometimes they slept on the street . When Carl was a child he was a math prodigy, he did his Dad's bills. He calculated how much his dad had to pay. He was born to a poor family. When he became a teenager the Duke sent him to college, according to http://www.thefamouspeople.com/profiles/carl-f-gauss-442.php "A child prodigy, he is said to have corrected an error in his father’s payroll calculations as a small boy of three. He began to astonish his teachers with his brilliance at school and made his first ground-breaking mathematical discovery while he was still a teenager. Even though his parents were poor, he found a patron in the Duke of Brunswick who recognized his intelligence and sent him to the prestigious University of Göttingen."
  • Like I said the Duke sent him to a prestigious college because he was interested in Carl. This was good for Carl because he was born to a Middle Class family and he couldn't afford to go to college. According to http://www.thefamouspeople.com/profiles/carl-f-gauss-442.php "Even though his parents were poor, he found a patron in the Duke of Brunswick who recognized his intelligence and sent him to the prestigious University of Göttingen."
  • So that is how we use a bell curve, we use it to see the outliers in the data
  • Carl was married to a Lady named Johanna and had 3 children with her. When she died he got married again and had 3 more children. According to http://www.thefamouspeople.com/profiles/carl-f-gauss-442.php "Carl Gauss’s first marriage was to Johanna Osthoff which resulted in the birth of three children. Johanna died in 1809. Even though shattered, he never let his personal tragedies affect his professional life. He later married Johanna's best friend, Friederica Wilhelmine Waldeck. He had three children from this marriage too. His second wife died in 1831 after a long illness."
  • Cal contributed the bell curve. The bell curve was a way to show data and which way the data is leaning toward to. According to http://www.biography.com/people/carl-friedrich-gauss-9307799 "He contributed a lot to math like the bell curve
  • Today in math we use the bell curve. When we look at data we see the outliers and which way the data is moving to , the left or the right
