Central Limit Theorem lesson

A set of resources that are useful in introducing the Central Limit Theorem in an introductory statistics class.
Course: Elementary Statistics

Knowledge of mean, standard deviation, histograms, probability, the normal distribution.

Pedagogical Approach


Learning Outcomes

Students will be able to identify histograms that could result from several sample means. Students will give the mean and standard deviation of the sample means based on the mean and standard deviation of the original population. Students will distinguish between probabilities for one observation and probabilities for sample means.


Questions will be added to a mid-term exam and the final exam. I may also include an in-class worksheet, depending on available time.
