Mathematics Seminar looks at Central Limit Theorem

For the first Mathematics Seminar of Winter 2017, adjunct Steve Harris will discuss the Central Limit Theorem.

In 1920, Hungarian-born mathematician George Pólya first used the name Central Limit Theorem to describe a result that has become so important in the study of probability and statistics. Harris’ presentation is designed to provide a visual comprehension of the meaning of the Central Limit Theorem. Some background in statistics would be helpful, but it is not required. Everyone is welcome!

The seminar runs 3-4 p.m. Jan. 25 in room 101 of Cook. Pop and cookies will be served at 2:45 p.m.
