Sampling distribution of the mean
This FLASH based applet illustrates the sampling distribution of the mean. This applet allows the user to pick a population from over 2000 predefined populations. The user can then choose size of the random sample to select. The applet can produce random samples in one, 10, 100, or 1000 at a time. The resulting means are illustrated on a histogram. The histogram has an outline of the normal...

General Central Limit Theorem (CLT) Activity
This activity represents a very general demonstration of the effects of the Central Limit Theorem (CLT). The activity is based on the SOCR Sampling Distribution CLT Experiment. This experiment builds upon a RVLS CLT applet (http://www.ruf.rice.edu/~lane/stat_sim/sampling_dist/) by extending the applet functionality and providing the capability of sampling from any SOCR Distribution.
Goals of...

*Using an Applet to Demonstrate a Sampling Distribution
This inclass demonstration combines real world data collection with the use of the applet to enhance the understanding of sampling distribution. Students will work in groups to determine the average date of their 30 coins. In turn, they will report their mean to the instructor, who will record these. The instructor can then create a histogram based on their sample means and explain that they...

**The Central Limit Theorem – How to Tame Wild Populations
Using a parameter it?s possible to represent a property of an entire population with a single number instead of millions of individual data points. There are a number of possible parameters to choose from such as the median, mode, or interquartile range. Each is calculated in a different manner and illuminates the data from a different point of view. The mean is one of the most useful and w...

Central Limit Theorem
The program CenLimit shows the effects of the central limit theorem. The user may select from various distributions to draw different numbers of observations for calculating the means. The distribution of the means is plotted. You may use this program to find out the relationship between the number of observations and the resulting standard deviation of the means.
