CL8 sample-to-population inference: Bootstrapping, way more than just a cool name

We all know that New Zealand has an envied, innovative and future focused Statistics curriculum. As we embrace the curriculum at its highest level, ideas allow us to make population inferences from samples that are more formal. There are many great activities and resources that build on the ideas of sampling variation from Level 6 and 7. Mark Hooper’s (Otago Boys’ High School) SDSE peer reviewed journal article is a must read for teachers embarking on teaching bootstrapping techniques. 

The practical workshop used both unplugged and web-based tools. Michelle’s presentation showcased some visual-based and tactile activities from the bootstrapping re-sampling process to confidence intervals.
