# Resampling

Activity Overview

This lesson involves approximate sampling distributions obtained from simulations based directly on a single sample. The focus of the lesson is on conducting hypothesis tests in situations for which the conditions of more traditional methods are not met.

Objectives

• Students will recognize that a sample can be used to generate a simulated sampling distribution from which a hypothesis test can be completed.
• Students will recognize that in some situations it is possible to carry out a hypothesis test without any assumptions about the distribution of the population.

Vocabulary

• hypothesis test
• mean
• median
• normal distribution
• parameter
• population
• sample
• sampling distribution
• statistic

This lesson involves approximate sampling distributions obtained from simulations based directly on a single sample. The focus of the lesson is on conducting hypothesis tests in situations for which the conditions of more traditional methods are not met.
As a result, students will:

• Develop sampling distributions of sample statistics from samples in a two-treatment scenario and complete associated hypothesis tests.
