Day 38: Sampling Vocabulary

4.1 Sampling 10-23-2014 Image006
This activity ROCKS!!  It is from the TI Math Nspired site for Statistics and I’ve found that these activities ALWAYS work great in the classroom.  In this simple activity, they practice probability sample methods such as simple random sampling, stratified random sampling (and what disproportionate samples are), cluster sampling and systematic sampling.  Students actually experience what the sampling vocabulary means through this activity…I guess it is quasi-kinesthetic.  I heard great discussion around the idea of SRS versus the other three methods.  It was awesome since we spend about 10 minutes talking about the two requirements of an SRS and through their math talk, they could practice and solidify their understanding of a simple random sample.  How do you use technology to help students aquire vocabulary?
