Exploring “What’s Typical?” Using Sampling and Design
Speakers: Diane Broberg, Jeff McCalla
Technology Proficiency Level: All
Many statistical investigations revolve around the question, “What’s typical?” But “typical” depends on how much variability is in the system. Well-chosen data collection procedures can help manage variability; good design is crucial. GIGO – Garbage In, Garbage Out.

Presenters will:
  • Examine the two main types of inference and the main obstacle each must overcome (bias and confounding)
  • Demonstrate why random sampling and random allocation are kinds of “insurance”
  • Use activities to illustrate when, how and why more complex data-collection
  • procedures such as stratification and blocking may be beneficial
  • Show good data-collection procedures using visual, technology-based activities and AP* questions
Both TI-84 Plus and TI-Nspire™ technology will be used.

Exploring “What’s Typical?” Using Probability
Speakers: Tracy Watson, Don Worcester
Technology Proficiency Level: All
Many statistical investigations revolve around the question, “What’s typical?” Probability provides a way to measure how “typical” something is and provides a language for describing uncertainty. Sample space and event are “duals” of population and statistic. Formulas for combining random variables explain inference standard error formulas for differences.

Presenters will:
  • Relate key concepts of probability to corresponding concepts in statistics
  • Examine probability as a long-run measurement
  • Illustrate how technology can be used to determine probabilities through direct calculation and through simulations
  • Investigate calculation and interpretation of expected values
  • Discuss measures for random variables formed by combining other random variables
  • Relate each of these concepts to the AP* testing experience
Both TI-84 Plus and TI-Nspire™ technology will be used.
