Conduct a survey to make a valid inference about a population. Organize your survey results in a frequency table. Choose an appropriate graph for your data and create the graph.

Assignment Question

TASK: Conduct a survey to make a valid inference about a population.

STEP 1: Think of a topic that interests you or a question that could benefit a local business or school. Create a statistical question about this topic. Your question must generate responses that are numerical.

STEP 2: Identify the population your question is targeting.

STEP 3: Determine how you will sample the population.

STEP 4: Organize your survey results in a frequency table.

STEP 5: Choose an appropriate graph for your data and create the graph. (bar graph, stem/leaf, box plot, etc.)

STEP 6: Calculate measures of central tendency and variability for your results. (6 measures)

STEP 7: Make at least two valid inferences about your population based on your answers in Step 6.

STEP 8: Prepare this information to present to your classmates. You may use ½ sheet of posterboard to display your information. You may also use computer applications like Google applications or Scratch. SCORING GUIDE Question is statistical (4) Results are numerical data (5) Sample is not biased (5) Population matches the question (5) Survey results organized in table (5) Survey results are in an appropriate graph (5) Measures of central tendency/variability (6) Two valid inferences made (5) Presentation is neat and clearly displayed (5)
