MAT 109 Computer Activity on the Central Limit Theorem Section 6-5 [40 total points] In this experiment, assume all dice have 6 sides. a. First run is the population. (5) One Die: Use STATDISK to simulate the rolling of a single die 1000 times. (Select Data , then Dice Generator .) Use Copy/Paste to transfer the results to the blank data window, Column 1. Once your data have been transferred, select Descriptive Statistics of Data to get the mean and standard deviation of this, the parent population. [Remember this first run requires the following entries in Dice Generator: 900 for sample size (which is really a population size, 1 for number of dice, and 6 for number of sides of each die. You cannot fill in random seed because you do not know it on this first (a) run. The computer will give you its pick for your random number. Record your random seed on this paper . You must use this random seed for each of the other three runs, b, c, and d. ] Use Histogram of Data to judge the shape of the distribution. If the bars are about the same size, write “approximately uniform.”
