Topic: Making Inferences and Justifying Conclusions
Common Core Mathematics 912
Cluster
Understand and evaluate random processes underlying statistical experiments
Grade 912
S.IC.2.
Decide if a specified model is consistent with results from a given datagenerating process, e.g., using simulation. For example, a model says a spinning coin falls heads up with probability 0.5. Would a result of 5 tails in a row cause you to question the model?
Cluster
Make inferences and justify conclusions from sample surveys, experiments, and observational studies
Grade 912
S.IC.3.
Recognize the purposes of and differences among sample surveys, experiments, and observational studies; explain how randomization relates to each.
S.IC.4.
Use data from a sample survey to estimate a population mean or proportion; develop a margin of error through the use of simulation models for random sampling.
S.IC.5.
Use data from a randomized experiment to compare two treatments; use simulations to decide if differences between parameters are significant.
S.IC.6.
Evaluate reports based on data.
