This activity was created for middle school math stations on probability and statistics. As students rotate through stations, they can be challenged in individual, partner, and group activities and games. This is an individual practice station. Here, students work independently on a guided problem solving activity. It requires students to analyze two populations by making inferences about random samples. I laminate the included student directions to keep at the station.

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.
Use measures of center and measures of variability for numerical data from random samples to draw informal comparative inferences about two populations. For example, decide whether the words in a chapter of a seventh-grade science book are generally longer than the words in a chapter of a fourth-grade science book.
