Database normalization is the process of restructuring a relational database in accordance with a series of so-called normal forms in order to reduce data redundancy and improve data integrity.
What are the three steps in normalizing data? What are the three goals of normalization?
Why is normalization needed in the design of the database?
Research and find a specific example of unnormalized data (or come up with your own example). Share why this data is considered unnormalized and discuss the problems with the data in its current form in context with what we hope to accomplish when we normalize the design.
