I'm new to Python with a new windows 8 machine (64-bit OS). Learning programming mainly for fun. Naturally I downloaded Python 3.3 (who doesn't wantthe latest and greatest). What I want involves functions related to the normal distribution. Based on my google research, it appears that SCIPY is agood way to go. That requires NUMPY. I don't seem to find an install that works for my environment which leads to the questions on this post: Is there an install for my environment and if so, where do I get it? If not, is there another package I should use? Or do I need to bite the bullet and install an earlier version of Python. Suggestions and comments appreciated. Thanks.
