O Uso de Simulação para o Ensino de Estatística Inferencial: o caso do Teorema Central do Limite

Palavras-chave: Simulação, Teorema Central do Limite, Estatística, Planilha Eletrônica

Resumo

Os conceitos de Estatística Inferencial compõem a base pela qual a prática da Estatística é desenvolvida em grande parte dos cursos de graduação. O Teorema Central do Limite é o pilar central para a sustentação de análises paramétricas e, portanto, de parte expressiva da Estatística Inferencial. O objetivo deste artigo é apresentar um módulo de simulação usando planilha eletrônica para o aprendizado interativo que ilustra os conceitos e a validade do Teorema Central do Limite para alunos do curso de Graduação em Ciências Biológicas como uma atividade formadora. Os resultados apontam que a simulação tem a capacidade de promover o aprendizado ativo com o uso de tecnologia para desenvolver o entendimento conceitual do teorema. Ademais, a atividade de simulação auxiliou o docente a entender dificuldades apresentadas durante o processo o que possibilita propor novas estratégias para o ensino do referido teorema.
