This article is written for middle school students to learn about random sampling. It is brief (one page), but will give your students an understanding of random sampling and why it is neccessary in order to make valid inferences. This can be used in station rotations or with a whole class. I have included directions and activity sheets for use as a partner reading activity and small group summarizing.

Understand that statistics can be used to gain information about a population by examining a sample of the population; generalizations about a population from a sample are valid only if the sample is representative of that population. Understand that random sampling tends to produce representative samples and support valid inferences.
