To Calculate:

1. Take 12 random values, each uniform between 0 and 1. Add them up and subtract 6. Prove that the result is close to a random value drawn from the Normal distribution with mean zero and standard deviation 1.

2. Invent a family of functions, each different, that look like those in Slide 3: they all have value 1 at x = 0; they all have zero derivative at x = 0; and they generally (not necessarily monotonically) decrease to zero at large x. Now multiply 10 of them together and graph the result near the origin (i.e., reproduce what Slide 3 was sketching).

3. For what value(s) of $\displaystyle \nu$ does the Student distribution (Segment 8, Slide 4) have a convergent 1st and 2nd moment, but divergent 3rd and higher moments?
