This Instructional Activity is a part of the Lesson 15, Unit 8, Grade 7. In this activity, students use data from a sample of movie reviews to estimate information about all the reviews for the movie. Based on the distribution of the data, students are asked to choose an appropriate measure of center and measure of variation then apply their calculations to the entire population. Finally, students gauge their trust in the measure of center they have chosen based on the associate measure of variation.
