Math
Description
Students will use samples to draw inferences about populations and compare two populations using measures of center and variability.
Timeline
3 Week(s)
Enduring Understandings
Reading, understanding, interpreting, and communicating data are critical in modeling a variety of real-world situations, drawing appropriate inferences, making informed decisions, and justifying those decisions.
Essential Questions
How can you determine whether a sample accurately represents a population?
How can you compare data sets that represent two populations?

Standard Component
  
Analyze different data distributions using statistical measures.
  
Understand that statistics can be used to gain information about a population by examining a sample of the population.
a. Understand that a sample is a subset of a population.
b. Understand that generalizations from a sample are valid only if the sample is representative of the population.
c. Understand that random sampling is used to produce representative samples and support valid inferences.
  
Use data from multiple samples to draw inferences about a population and investigate variability in estimates of the characteristic of interest.
ECO
  
Compare the numerical measures of center, measures of frequency and measures of variability) from two random samples to draw inferences about the populations.
