- 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.

- normal distribution

About the Lesson
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.
