Central Limits Theorem

Description:One of the most fundamental theorems in the study of statistical inference is the Central Limits Theorem. This states basically that the means of successive random samples taken from a population will be normally distributed whatever the underlying parent distribution. This aplet illustrates this and that the standard deviations are related by ratio. Sampling can be done from different parent distributions and the resulting collection of means compared to the equivalent Normal distribution. It is fairly slow to execute because of the need for repeated sampling but would be quite useful to teachers.
