Visit the following Web site Central Limit Theorem Applet and read what is posted: http://www.stat.sc.edu/~west/javahtml/CLT.html

You will choose from the pull down menu at the bottom of the page both the number of dice and the number of rolls at a time. When you "click" you will be virtually rolling your dice.

Complete the experiment using the following conditions. Note: You may need to click your Web browser's Refresh or Reload button to reset the experiment. Each time you repeat the experiment, keep track of how many clicks (rolls) it takes to produce a normal distribution:

1 die, 10 rolls at a time
1 die, 100 rolls at a time
1 die, 1000 rolls at a time

2 dice, 10 rolls at a time
2 dice, 100 rolls at a time
2 dice, 1000 rolls at a time

5 dice, 10 rolls at a time
5 dice, 100 rolls at a time
5 dice, 1000 rolls at a time

Discuss the following: a report of how many clicks (rolls) it took under each condition to produce a normal distribution, a brief explanation of what conducting these experiments tells you about the Central Limit Theorem, and how this information may apply to research in which you may be involved.

There are multiple ways to understand the CLT in terms of dice. First you could imagine that you have a die. When you roll it there is a probability associated with the outcome. Namely,
Roll 1 2 3 4 5 6
Probability 1/6 1/6 1/6 1/6 1/6 1/6
The mean of which is
1/6(1) + 1/6(2) + 1/6(3) + 1/6(4) + 1/6(5) + 1/6(6) = 3.5

Now imagine rolling the die 2 times or rolling 2 dice once (it doesn't matter in this case) and computed the mean of the dice. Possible outcomes are as follows:
(1,1) the mean of which is 1.
(1,3) the mean of which is 2.
(4,6) the mean of which is 5.

The CLT states that if we were to continue this experiment over and over and to compute the mean each time and to plot a histogram of our results (the means) they would have a normal distribution with a mean themselves approaching 3.5. So, we say that the mean of the sample means approaches the true population mean. ...

Solution Summary

I demonstrate the properties of the central limit theorem (CLT) by conducting several dice rolling experiments with a web based java applet. Graphs of the process are included in the explanation.

Sampling Distribution and theCentralLimitTheorem
Find the probabilities.
a. From National Weather Service records, the annual snowfall in the TopKick Mountains has a mean of 92 inches and a standard deviation ? of 12 inches. If the snowfall from 25 randomly selected years are chosen, what it the probability that the

A population is normally distributed, with a mean of 23.45 and a standard deviation of 3.8. What is the probability of each of the following?
a) Taking a sample of size 10 and obtaining a sample mean of 22 or more
b) Taking a sample of size 4 and getting a sample mean of more than 26.

Could you please explain CentralLimitTheorem to me in layman's terms and then read the article linked below and detail how it was used therein? Thank you.

A normally distributed population has a mean of 40 and a standard deviation of 12. What does thecentrallimittheorem say about the sampling distribution of the mean if samples of size 100 are drawn from this population?

Why is theCentralLimitTheorem so important to the study of sampling distributions?
A. It allows us to disregard the size of the sample selected when the population is not normal
B. It allows us to disregard the shape of the sampling distributions when the size of the population is large
C. It allows us to disregard

We are given a sequence (X_k) of independent r.v.s with cumulative distribution functions (F_k). The cdfs are all continuous and strictly increasing. Show that the sequence of
Z_n = -1/sqrt(n) * sum_{k=1}^n [ 1 + log(1 - F_k (X_k)) ]
for n = 1, 2, 3, ... converges in distribution to a standard normal distribution.
