 Use Random Sampling To Draw Inferences About A Population.
 State Standard:
 Use data from a random sample to draw inferences about a population with an unknown characteristic of interest. Generate multiple samples (or simulated samples) of the same size to gauge the variation in estimates or predictions. For example, estimate the mean word length in a book by randomly sampling words from the book; predict the winner of a school election based on randomly sampled survey data. Gauge how far off the estimate or prediction might be.

 In Topics C and D, students focus on using random sampling to draw informal inferences about a population (7.SP.A.1, 7.SP.A.2). In Topic C, they investigate sampling from a population (7.SP.A.2). ...

 Student Outcome Students use data from a random sample to estimate a population proportion.

 Student Outcomes Students understand the term sampling variability in the context of estimating a population proportion. Students know that increasing the sample size decreases sampling variability.

 Student Outcomes Students use data from a random sample to estimate a population mean. Students know that increasing the sample size decreases the sampling variability of the sample mean.

 Student Outcomes Students use data from a random sample to estimate a population mean. Students understand the term “sampling variability” in the context of estimating a population mean.

 Student Outcomes Students select a random sample from a population. Given a description of a population, students design a plan for selecting a random sample from that population.

 Grade 7 Module 5: Statistics and Probability In this module, students begin their study of probability, learning how to interpret probabilities and how to compute probabilities in simple settings. ...
