Third Mercer County Math Circle: Normal Distributions and Probability

Advanced Series

Title: The Law of Large Numbers and the Central Limit Theorem

Speaker: Chris Zhang

Time & Date: 2pm-3pm Saturday January 14

Location: Princeton Public Library, teen room (3rd floor)

Abstract: The Gaussian or normal distribution is one of the most important models in statistics and is widespread in many fields of science, engineering, social science, and math. First we try to understand probability and prove the Law of Large Numbers. Then we will learn why the normal distribution is so prevalent through the Central Limit Theorem.

Chili Peppers: 3 out of 4.
