This monograph was written for the Conference of the New Instructional Materials in Physics, held at the University of Washington in summer, 1965. It is intended for students who have had an introductory college physics course. It seeks to provide an introduction to the idea of distributions in general, and to some aspects of the subject in physics. There are three chapters. Chapter 1 gives a non-mathematical treatment of distributions. Chapter 2 considers means, other averages standard deviation, and the binomial distribution. Chapter 3 concerns continuous distributions and requires students to be familiar with elementary calculus. Problems are presented at the end of each chapter. (LC)
