Statistical Literacy: Simulations with Dolphins
Strayer, Jeremy; Matuszewski, Amber
Mathematics Teacher, v109 n8 p606-611 Apr 2016
In this article, Strayer and Matuszewski present a six-phase strategy that teachers can use to help students develop a conceptual understanding of inferential hypothesis testing through simulation. As Strayer and Matuszewski discuss the strategy, they describe each phase in general, explain how they implemented the phase while teaching their students the "Dolphins" lesson, and show how the phase aligns with teacher actions in "Principles to Actions: Ensuring Mathematical Success for All" (NCTM 2014).
