Unit 5, Lesson 20# Estimating a Population Proportion

EngageNY 45 min(s)

In this lesson, students continue to work with random samples and the distribution of the sample proportions. Students use data from a random sample to estimate a population proportion. In preparation of this lesson, provide students or small groups of students the random number table and the table of data for all 200 students in the middle school described in the exercises. Students use the random number table to select their random samples in the same way they used the random number table in the previous lesson.
