The Central Limit Theorem can be demonstrated by taking sample mean distributions from a population that is not normally distributed.
- Graph the probability distribution for rolling a six-sided die as a relative frequency histogram. Determine the mean and standard deviation for this distribution.
- Construct a relative frequency distribution for a sample mean distribution with sample size of 4 for rolling a six-sided die using 100 trials. Sketch this as a relative frequency histogram using the same horizontal and vertical scales as the relative frequency histogram for the population. This means using classes of 1≤x ̅<2,2≤x ̅<3,1≤x ̅<2,2≤x ̅<3, etc. This can be done using real dice rolls or simulations using random number generators.
On the TI-84 this can be done by adding four randInt(1, 6, 100) values and then dividing by 4 in the list label.
- Determine the mean and standard deviation for the sample mean distribution with n = 4.
- Repeat the process for the sample mean when n = 9. Graph the relative frequency histogram using the same scale as the previous wo distributions.
- Enter the mean and standard deviations for all three distributions in the table below.

- Write a brief paragraph discussing the similarities and differences between these three distributions and how it relates to the Central Limit Theorem.
