Connecting Research to Teaching: Using Data to Motivate the Use of Empirical Sampling Distributions
Lee, Hollylynne S.; Starling, Tina T.; Gonzalez, Marggie D.
Mathematics Teacher, v107 n6 p465-469 Feb 2014
Research shows that students often struggle with understanding empirical sampling distributions. Using hands-on and technology models and simulations of problems generated by real data help students begin to make connections between repeated sampling, sample size, distribution, variation, and center. A task to assist teachers in implementing research-based strategies is included.
