Unit 8, Lesson 15# Estimating Population Measures of Center

Open Up Resources 40 min(s)

Use the measure of center from a representative sample to estimate the same measure of center for a population. Calculate measures of variability for samples and use them to gauge the accuracy of estimates for population characteristics. Let's use samples to estimate measures of center for the population. Learning targets: students can consider the variability of a sample to get an idea for how accurate my estimate is.
