#### Understand and evaluate random processes underlying statistical experiments

CCSS.Math.Content.HSS.IC.A.1

Understand statistics as a process for making inferences about population parameters based on a random sample from that population.

Understand statistics as a process for making inferences about population parameters based on a random sample from that population.

CCSS.Math.Content.HSS.IC.A.2

Decide if a specified model is consistent with results from a given data-generating process, e.g., using simulation.

Decide if a specified model is consistent with results from a given data-generating process, e.g., using simulation.

*For example, a model says a spinning coin falls heads up with probability 0.5. Would a result of 5 tails in a row cause you to question the model*?#### Make inferences and justify conclusions from sample surveys, experiments, and observational studies

CCSS.Math.Content.HSS.IC.B.3

Recognize the purposes of and differences among sample surveys, experiments, and observational studies; explain how randomization relates to each.

Recognize the purposes of and differences among sample surveys, experiments, and observational studies; explain how randomization relates to each.
