Using minitab, students will explore the central limit theorem.

Central Limit Theorem Lab

Name: ___________________________

## Student learning outcomes:

The student will examine properties of the Central Limit Theorem.

## Theoretical distribution: tossing a single die

1. Is the distribution continuous or discrete? __________________

2. In words, state the theoretical distribution for the tossing of a single die?

X~ _____________________________________________

3. Calculate μ = _____________________________________________________________(indicate the formula)

4. Calculate σ = _____________________________________________________________(indicate the formula)

## Collect the data

1. Using the random number generator in Minitab, simulate the tossing of a single die 360 times.

Calc ->Random Data ->Integer.

2. Construct a histogram using Minitab and include it with this lab. Be sure that you label the graph and axis.

3. Calculate the following: (include the session window)

$\overline{x}$ = ______________ s = ______________ n = 1 (single die)

4. Draw a smooth curve through the tops of the bars of the histogram. Use 1 – 2 complete sentences, describe the general shape of the curve.

## Collecting averages of pairs

Repeat step #1 (of the section above titled "Collect the Data") with one exception. Instead of recording the value of a single die, record the average of two dice. Use Minitab and generate 360 rows with two columns. Then use the Calc ->Row Statistics and select mean. This will give you a column with the ‘average’ of the two tosses.

1. Construct a histogram. Scale the axes using the same scaling and labeling for the axis as you did for the first graph and include it with this lab. (This is done by selecting both the original data column and the mean2 column to graph. Then select multiple graphs → separate graphs → same x-scale. This will redraw your first graph, however the computer needs that graph as a reference to draw the second.)

2. Calculate the following:

$\overline{x}$ = ______________ s = ______________ n = 2 (a pair of dice)

3. Draw a smooth curve through tops of the bars of the histogram. Use 1 – 2 complete sentences, describe the general shape of the curve.

## Collecting averages of groups of five

Repeat step #1 (of the section above titled "Collect the Data") with one exception. Instead of recording the value of a single die, record the average of five dice. Use Minitab and generate 360 rows with five columns. Then use the Calc ->Row Statistics and select mean. This will give you a column with the ‘average’ of the five tosses.

1. Construct a histogram. Scale the axes using the same scaling and labeling for the axis as you did for the first graph and include it with this lab. (Again you need to graph both the first data set with this as multiple graphs.)

2. Calculate the following:

$\overline{x}$ = ______________ s = ______________ n = 5 (5 dice)

3. Draw a smooth curve through tops of the bars of the histogram. Use 1 – 2 complete sentences, describe the general shape of the curve.

## Collecting averages of groups of 20

Repeat step #1 (of the section above titled "Collect the Data") with one exception. Instead of recording the value of a single die, record the average of two dice. Use Minitab and generate 360 rows with twenty columns. Then use the Calc ->Row Statistics and select mean. This will give you a column with the ‘average’ of the twenty tosses.

1. Construct a histogram. Scale the axes using the same scaling and labeling for the axis as you did for the first graph and include it with this lab. (Again you need to graph both the first data set with this as multiple graphs.)

2. Calculate the following:

$\overline{x}$ = ______________ s = ______________ n = 20 (20 dice)

3. Draw a smooth curve through tops of the bars of the histogram. Use 1 – 2 complete sentences, describe the general shape of the curve.

## Discussion questions:

1. As n (the number of dice being averaged) changed, how did the shape of the graph change? (Be sure you have the same x axis for all graphs or you will not be able to correctly answer this question.) Use 1 – 2 complete sentences to explain what happened.

2. Looking at the values for the sample mean and standard deviation, explain what happens as n increases. Use 1 – 2 complete sentences to explain what happened.

3. State the Central Limit Theorem. How do your simulations demonstrate this theorem? Use 3 – 4 complete sentences

I know this work

The given of f(x=x-2. then what is the value of this f(3) 5f(x+1)
hmm well what is the answer
Abhi
how do they get the third part x = (32)5/4
can someone help me with some logarithmic and exponential equations.
sure. what is your question?
20/(×-6^2)
Salomon
okay, so you have 6 raised to the power of 2. what is that part of your answer
I don't understand what the A with approx sign and the boxed x mean
it think it's written 20/(X-6)^2 so it's 20 divided by X-6 squared
Salomon
I'm not sure why it wrote it the other way
Salomon
I got X =-6
Salomon
ok. so take the square root of both sides, now you have plus or minus the square root of 20= x-6
oops. ignore that.
so you not have an equal sign anywhere in the original equation?
hmm
Abhi
is it a question of log
Abhi
🤔.

I rally confuse this number And equations too I need exactly help

what is a good calculator for all algebra; would a Casio fx 260 work with all algebra equations? please name the cheapest, thanks.
a perfect square v²+2v+_
kkk nice
algebra 2 Inequalities:If equation 2 = 0 it is an open set?
or infinite solutions?
Kim
The answer is neither. The function, 2 = 0 cannot exist. Hence, the function is undefined.

Azam
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
Prasenjit
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
Azam
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
Prasenjit
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
Damian
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
Damian
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials

I'm interested in Nanotube
Uday
this technology will not going on for the long time , so I'm thinking about femtotechnology 10^-15
Prasenjit
can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world
At high concentrations (>0.01 M), the relation between absorptivity coefficient and absorbance is no longer linear. This is due to the electrostatic interactions between the quantum dots in close proximity. If the concentration of the solution is high, another effect that is seen is the scattering of light from the large number of quantum dots. This assumption only works at low concentrations of the analyte. Presence of stray light.
the Beer law works very well for dilute solutions but fails for very high concentrations. why?
how did you get the value of 2000N.What calculations are needed to arrive at it
