7.SP.2 – Use data from a random sample to draw inferences about a population with an unknown characteristic of interest. Generate multiple samples (or simulated samples) of the same size to gauge the variation in estimates or predictions.

1. ## Make inferences about a population by analyzing random samples

COMMON CORE: 7.SP.2| BY: MARIAN JAMIESON

In this lesson you will learn how to make inferences about a population with an unknown characteristic by analyzing random samples.

2. ## Use proportional reasoning to make estimates about a population

COMMON CORE: 7.SP.2| BY: MARIAN JAMIESON

In this lesson you will learn how to make estimates about a population with an unknown characteristic by using proportional reasoning.

3. ## Assess whether an inference is valid by analyzing data

COMMON CORE: 7.SP.2| BY: MARIAN JAMIESON

In this lesson you will learn to test whether an inference is valid by analyzing data from multiple samples.

4. ## Make estimates about a population using the mean of multiple samples

COMMON CORE: 7.SP.2| BY: MARIAN JAMIESON

In this lesson you will learn how to make estimates about a population with an unknown characteristic by using the mean of multiple samples.

#### Interactive Practice:
