PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Students will explore the normal distribution through real-world examples and the binomial distribution as number of experiments increases. Students will connect frequency plots to their corresponding probability distributions, and explore the shape, center and spread with the mean and provided standard deviation. This mission is aligned with Common Core State Standards: HSS.ID.A.3.

The fun stuff:
Candies, NBA players and sodas! But especially candies--the kids will take samples of candies in order to build a roughly normal distribution. Yum! Tasty treats with profound implications for student understanding of statistics.

The zip file includes:
★The mission. (12 pages).
★A two-page Quick Start guide for teachers. Detailed and helpful!
★Selected Answers in pdf form.
★Selected Answers online, password protected. For students to correct at home!

About Courage To Core:
We all have an innate curiosity about how the world works. We are wired to experiment at the edges of our knowledge, to look for patterns and to draw conclusions. Mistakes are the welcome surprises which help us refine the experiment. In a student-centered classroom, students collaborate to ask questions, gather data, interpret results and articulate understanding. Success at the edge of knowledge demands persistence and creativity. Courage To Core provides a context for students to work together to become the agents of their success and the owners of their cognition.
