CL7 sample-to-population inference: An informal giant leap

A big challenge and opportunity we face as Statistics teachers is the seemingly quantum leap from describing a single sample of data to using the ideas of sampling variation and making an inference for a population. Mark Hooper (Otago Boys’ High School) and Michelle Dalrymple used the foundations of Level 5 and 6 on the curriculum to head on a journey to constructing informal confidence intervals. Real data sets will be used to explore the ideas. The workshop was practical, using both unplugged and web based tools.
