Product Description

By Gail Burrill, Christine A. Frankin, Landy Godbold, and Linda J. Young

The activities in this book introduce students to simple random sampling, sampling techniques, and simulation as a tool for analyzing both categorical and numerical data. Scenarios probe topics of interest to high school students, including possible workplace discrimination against women and links between vegetarian diets and blood cholesterol levels. As students work, they learn what makes a well-designed study; how to distinguish among observational studies, surveys, and experiments; and when statistical inference is permissible. The supplemental CD-ROM features interactive electronic activities, master copies of activity pages for students, and additional readings for teachers.
