## Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi, All:

I will be teaching intro Stats next semester, and I always have trouble making the CLT seem relevant/meaningful to students without much math nor probability background, whose eyes glaze at the mention of the distribution of the sampling mean being normal, no matter (given random selection, etc.) the distribution of the original population. Just wondering if someone has had success in making the CLT appear interesting and explaining its usefulness at this level.

Thanks.
