In class:

I am assessing how well you can:

1. Understand statistics as a process for making inferences about population parameters based on a random sample from that population.
2. Define a random variable for a quantity of interest by assigning a numerical value to each event in a sample space; graph the corresponding probability distribution using the same graphical displays as for data distributions.
3. Analyze decisions and strategies using probability concepts

In addition to Running Start objectives around estimating population parameters.

• Take a look at the investigative task.
• Time to work on it.
• Your final report is due Monday @ the start of class.
