Abstract: 

In this paper, we will break down the central limit theorem into several components, point out the misconceptions in each part, and evaluate the appropriateness of computer simulation in the context of instructional strategies. The position of this paper is that even with the aid of computer simulations, instructors should explicitly explain the correct and incorrect concepts of each component of the CLT.
