Exploring “What’s Typical?” Using Sampling Distributions and Simulation
Technology: TI-84 Plus family, TI-Nspire™ Technology
Topic: Teaching Resources
Speakers: Gloria Barrett, Landy Godbold
Many statistical investigations revolve around the question, “What’s typical?” This is especially true in formal inference. Reference distributions provide the basis for addressing that question.
- Relate the need for reference distributions to the logic of hypothesis tests and confidence intervals
- Explore both theoretical and simulation-based reference distributions based on AP* items
- Show how the functionality of TI technology can enhance the understanding of reference distributions
Both TI-84 Plus and TI-Nspire™ technology are used.Download documents
