The purpose of this task is to assess understanding of how study design dictates whether a conclusion of causation is warranted. This study was observational and not an experiment, which means that it is not possible to reach a cause-and-effect conclusion.
In this task students design a plan to conduct a random sample of the students in their school to estimate the proportion of students who think their parents are strict.
This lesson is for a math classroom, but can be adapted to fit any grade, subject, or content. In this lesson, students will use an iPad and its features: Keynote, Pages, Garageband, Numbers, Presentation, and iMovie. Students will use 3 of those features/programs to create a video lesson consisting of several examples from a topic of their choice. This project is in place of a term final, so their chosen topic should be from their current term.Image citation: The image is one I created.
