Big Idea: Random sampling tends to produce representative samples and supports valid inferences about the larger population. In this lesson, students will engage in a real world scenario in which they must make inferences from a random sampling of middle school students. Students will determine if a sampling of students is biased or unbiased and then develop a plan for taking their own sampling of students for the purpose of ordering tennis shoes for an entire middle school student body. Vocabulary: random, sample, population, inference, bias, survey
