ISTE/ NETS STANDARDS
Creativity and Innovation
: Students demonstrate creative thinking,construct knowledge, and develop innovative products and processesusing technology.1C. Use models and simulations to explore complex systems and issues.
Research and Information Fluency
: Students apply digital tools togather, evaluate, and use information.3D. Process data and report results.
COMMON CORE MATHEMATICS STANDARDS
Understand and evaluate random processes underlying statisticalexperiments
S-IC.1. Understand statistics as a process for making inferences aboutpopulation parameters based on a random sample from that populationS-IC.2. Decide if a specified model is consistent with results from a givendata-generating process, e.g., using simulation.
For example, a modelsays a spinning coin falls heads up with probability 0.5. Would a result of 5 tails in a row cause you to question the model?
S-IC.3. Recognize the purposes of and differences among samplesurveys, experiments, and observational studies; explain howrandomization relates to each.S-IC.4. Use data from a sample survey to estimate a population mean orproportion; develop a margin of error through the use of simulationmodels for random sampling.S-IC.5. Use data from a randomized experiment to compare twotreatments; use simulations to decide if differences between parametersare significant.S-IC.6. Evaluate reports based on data.
