Abstract: 

This article shows a concrete and easy recognizable view of a cumulative distribution function(cdf).<br>Photograph views of the search tabs on dictionaries are used to increase students' understanding and<br>facility with the concept of a cumulative distribution function. Projects for student investigations are<br>also given. This motivation and view helps the cdf become a bit more tangible and understandable
