The History and Use of Sampling Methods
Young mathematicians define population, draw convenience sample from the population, draw quota sample from the population, and draw random probability sample from the population. They explain why a random probability sample usually gives more accurate results, explain a famous example of a convenience sample that failed, and explain a famous example of a quota sample that failed.

Data Analysis Using Technology
Analyze data using technology. Middle schoolers design data investigations, describe data, and draw their own conclusions. Then they select the best type of graph, graph and interpret the data, and look for patterns in trends. They also use a graphing calculator to investigate and to communicate their results.

Sticks and Stones: Probability
Students collect data and determine the mean. In this probability lesson, students play a game and collect information on the various moves. From the collected information, they determine the probability of winning the game. Students modify the rules to create a different game, collect statistical information, and compute the average number of turns needed to win the game.
