More on the Central Limit Theorem and the Sampling Distribution of the Sample Mean

Probability and statistics on Khan Academy: We dare you to go through a day in which you never consider or use probability. Did you check the weather forecast? Busted! Did you decide to go through the drive through lane vs walk in? Busted again! We are constantly creating hypotheses, making predictions, testing, and analyzing. Our lives are full of probabilities! Statistics is related to probability because much of the data we use when determining probable outcomes comes from our understanding of statistics. In these tutorials, we will cover a range of topics, some which include: independent events, dependent probability, combinatorics, hypothesis testing, descriptive statistics, random variables, probability distributions, regression, and inferential statistics. So buckle up and hop on for a wild ride. We bet you’re going to be challenged AND love it!

About Khan Academy: Khan Academy offers practice exercises, instructional videos, and a personalized learning dashboard that empower learners to study at their own pace in and outside of the classroom. We tackle math, science, computer programming, history, art history, economics, and more. Our math missions guide learners from kindergarten to calculus using state-of-the-art, adaptive technology that identifies strengths and learning gaps. We’ve also partnered with institutions like NASA, The Museum of Modern Art, The California Academy of Sciences, and MIT to offer specialized content.

I feel like I just got flipped off by Sal. 1:58 LOL

2. mel np says:

i love you!

3. ryan c says:

11:45 doesnt N=25 has a larger curtosis cos -0.07 is more than -0.08? not meaning to nitpick and i get the idea but its just smth that bugged me a little haha

4. Aleric Lalonde says:

I love you.

this is missed up, I have over 10 years of experience in Probability and Statistics under my belt and let me tell you you will never approach a normal distribution with any sample size this because of factors that are too much for me to list write now and very difficult for normal people to understand, so the best way to go about this is to take my ward for it. signing out

n = infinity is just equal to the mean..

7. Vicky Bro says:

(6+9)/2 = 7.5

You're a god, hard carrying my Business Statistics exam haha <3

"Let's take an n of 16. That's a nice, healthy n."

10. thrunsalmighty says:

But (in this case), the distribution  ofthe means says less and less about the original distribution.

11. David Lunn says:

It's not impossible to get 7.5 when n=2, what about (9+6)/2?

Sal is amazing. He brought from the edge of hysteria. Thanks for the help Sal!
