An interactive statistical sampling activity with chocolate

Summary

We will present an activity that engages students with key statistical ideas – including sampling, bias, variability and estimation – using virtual blocks and real chocolate. The activity provides an experiential foundation for building understandings of important statistical concepts, produces data which are meaningful to students, and it is a learning task that allows for multiple entry and exit points. Furthermore, it can be tailored for year levels 8-12 and class sizes from 20 upwards. The activity is easy to implement, supported by good documentation and freely available on the web.

Note: This is a repeat of the same session from MAV 2017.

Please bring a laptop, tablet or mobile device if possible.
