Introduction If we measure the stature of students of FEOC, we can obtain its mean and standard deviation: Number of students: 269 Mean of stature: 161.6 cm Standard deviation: 6.3 cm Median: 159 cm Range: 149 a 185 cm. Notation For parameters of population, we use Greek letters; to parameters in sample, we use Roman letters. Parameter Population Sample Mean _ X Standard deviation s Sampling distribution If we take many samples of the same size of the same population, each sample can have different mean and standard deviation. If we plot these sample means we can obtain a sampling distribution. If the sample size is big, the mean distribution is almost Normal, although data distribution in the population is not Normal.
