This lab asks students to apply concepts of 1-sample t-test of means in a real world context. They are able to play/simulate games and determine if their theoretical calculation is accurate.
This lab integrates hypothesis testing based on two carnival games. Spiraling expected value and random variable topics from previous chapters will help themto prepare them with a "big picture" when it comes to the AP Statistics Exam.
(For the high flyers: It also asks students to develop of higher order thinking to extend the concepts from expected value of random variables to develop a formula for a 2 sample t-test for means.This can be an optional question or omitted depending on the readiness of your class. )
