Assume the height and weight data is population data. Based on this population, construct 10 random samples with 15 students in each random sample (Click on this link to see how to do this in Excel http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5XrJcFmbpWI). Then calculate the mean height for each of the 10 samples as well as the mean and variance of the 10 sample mean heights. Report your results in the following table.

Sample1 | Sample2 | Sample3 | Sample4 | Sample5 | Sample6 | Sample7 | Sample8 | Sample9 | Sample10 | |

Student 1 | ||||||||||

Student 2 | ||||||||||

Student 3 | ||||||||||

Student 4 | ||||||||||

Student 5 | ||||||||||

Student 6 | ||||||||||

Student 7 | ||||||||||

Student 8 | ||||||||||

Student 9 | ||||||||||

Student 10 | ||||||||||

Student 11 | ||||||||||

Student 12 | ||||||||||

Student 13 | ||||||||||

Student 14 | ||||||||||

Student 15 | ||||||||||

Mean of sample means | ||||||||||

Variance of sample means | ||||||||||

Based on the above results and some additional calculations of the population mean and variance, explain the following:

- What is sampling distribution?
- What is the relationship between the mean of the sample mean heights and population mean height?
- What is the relationship between the variance of the sample mean heights and the population variance of height?
