Subject: Spreadsheet formulae: Garrett Hardin

Does anyone know off-hand a computer spreadsheet formula to draw a bell
curve (normal distribution)?

This is to prepare a slide for students illustrating Garrett Hardin's
Tragedy of the Commons, itself not a Gaussian distribution (if you work
it out... I think.)  I'd be equally grateful for reference to any graphic
presentation of GH's point.
