Statistical Inference: Confidence Intervals

Published on 10/28/2008

Activity Overview

The students will construct 1-proportion confidence intervals. This lesson begins by having the students construct a confidence interval with the formula and then leads them through the steps needed to use the Nspire's statistical applications to construct confidence intervals. Students would do best if they work collaboratively on this activity. They will interpret and analyze confidence intervals in context.

Before the Activity

Teach students how to construct a 1-prop Z-interval with the formula prior to this activity.

See attached teacher notes.

During the Activity

See attached student handout and file.

After the Activity

Go through the answer file after activity as a class.
