Discussion of In-Class Task 2 How Many Have School Spirit: Part II Who Sends the Most Text Messages In-class Task 3 & Discussion Feedback on In-Class Tasks

Get back into your groups from last week. Choose one of the five questions. What is the population of interest? What is the population parameter of interest? Collect samples according to your plan from last week. Use your data to answer the questions in Part II of Activity Sheet 2. If you complete the questions on Activity Sheet 2 for one survey question, choose another question and repeat the process.

What level of the GAISE Framework do you think this activity is? Why? What extensions might you add to further build your students understanding of sampling variability?

Question: Using the population text message data on four students, how can we determine which of the four students does the most text messaging? Statistical Question: ?

What happens to the shape of the sampling distributions as the size of the sample varies? How do the population distributions compare to each other? How do the sampling distributions compare to each other? How is the shape of the sampling distribution related to the shape of the population from which the samples were drawn? What are the means of the sampling distributions? How would you describe the spread of the sampling distributions? How can you use this information to make a decision about which student texted more?

What level of the GAISE Framework do you think this activity is? Why? What extensions might you add to further build your students understanding of sampling variability?

Work individually on the Mira Beach Continued Task. Keep in mind that your work will be scored and returned to you. So, please write out complete answers. In other words, answer the questions in the manner that you would hope your students would. Be prepared to share your answers with the rest of the class.

Bring your laptop to class Bring in 40 pennies; 5 nickels; 5 dimes HW 4 Read Noll & Shaughnessy article (in notebook). Before reading the article, look at the directions for Part II of HW 4.
