Statistical analysis: Year 8 – planning tool

This planning resource for Year 8 is for the topic of Statistical analysis. Students focus on understanding that random samples chosen from large populations can show quite different distributions and proportions when compared with each other. Students make connections when different sample sizes are or can be responsible for this effect, which can be shown numerically or visually.
