Big Ideas: Observations or assumptions can be used to design and create a simulation that generates data about an entire population or a new sample. In this lesson, students will design a simulation and generate survey data based on an observation. Students may choose to use a random number table, or technology to develop their results. This lesson precedes lessons in which students will use data from surveys to estimate population mean and proportions, determine margins of error, construct and interpret confidence intervals, and use sampling proportions to compare populations. Vocabulary: sample, survey Special Materials: One of the following: Random number table Spreadsheet program Graphing calculator
