re:[apstat] Two Proofs APStat Teachers Should Be Familiar With...

For those interested in reading/studying such, a few observations/ comments:
1. The proof of the CLT should be read First. 2. Generally, these proofs would not be "helpful" for firsttime APStat teachers (unless the class has students who have already taken BCCalc And are interested in proofs). 3. One should not assume the second proof (proving the T stat is tdistributed...) is one one can read in an amount of time comparable to the CLT proof: It is timeconsuming and requires much focus and time. (It is in a way a careful sampling of an entire mathstat course, and so those who have not seen it before should be ready to spend focused time on such.)
For those who already did get a proof of the CLT, please let me know when requesting the "T Stat Proof" so I don't also attached a CLT proof.
Again, these proofs should not be of concern to firsttime APStat teachers, who should be posting questions, especially as authors of the three main textbooks (Dave B, Chris O, and Daren S) are awaiting such questions...

PS: Of course still make requests for the proof(s) to me offList. (I should be able to get such to you by no later than the next day.)
