## Why you'll love this

Standards covered...

✅ 7.SP.A.1 Understand that statistics can be used to gain information about a population by examining a sample of the population; generalizations about a population from a sample are valid only if the sample is representative of that population. Understand that random sampling tends to produce representative samples and support valid inferences.

✅ 7.SP.A.2 Use data from a random sample to draw inferences about a population with an unknown characteristic of interest. Generate multiple samples (or simulated samples) of the same size to gauge the variation in estimates or predictions.

What's included... (12 pages total)

✅ Guided notes (2 pages)

• what is a random sample?

• how to draw inferences by using data collected from random samples

✅ Graphing Practice (1 page)

✅ Maze (1 page)

✅ Doodle math, a twist on color-by-number (1 page)

✅ Real-life application (1 page)

Students learn through visual notes and practice problems, mazes, and doodle math (similar to a color-by-number activity), and then read about a real-life example of statistical questions can be used in real life. It's a print-and-go and artsy lesson. If your students love color-by-number, color-by-code, or sketch notes, they'll love this lesson.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Karen S. - “Just a good fun activity during the holidays for practicing skills! Great product!”

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐️ Christine M. - “I put this out as an extra credit assignment for my 8th graders at the end of the square and cube roots unit.  The students who chose to do it seemed to enjoy the "doodle" part because it was different than a typical color by number task.  Thank you!”

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Carly S. - “My students really loved this and it worked really well in my classroom!”
