# Sample Statistics

### Sampling (DS4): HSS.ID.A.2

The Mission: Students will explore samples and statistics using real world data. They will take multiple samples from a roughly normally distributed population and observe that the samples statistics are normally distributed with a mean close to the population mean. This mission is aligned with Common Core State Standards: HSS.ID.A.2. 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…

An elevator has a maximum occupancy of 16 people and a weight limit of 2500 lbs. The average weight of the population is 150 lbs, with a standard deviation of 27 lbs, and the distribution of weight in the population is approximately normal. Suppose that a random sample of size 16 people is chosen. a) Is this a problem about means or proportions? If proportions, do we meet the c) What symbol do we use to represent the sample statistic?

Central Limit Theorem- The Central Limit Theorem, tells us that if we take the mean of the samples (n) and plot the frequencies of their mean, we get a normal distribution. Video: https://www.khanacademy.org/math/probability/statistics/v/central-limit-theorem
