This unit, designed around the newly adopted Statistics TEKS, will provide a strong framework for any introductory stats course, whether offered at the HS or collegiate level. The unit begins with a strong foundation in the study of statistics, and chellenges the students to design a series of surveys. The results from these surveys will actually drive the student through several of the next concepts in the course. Upon learning about sampling techniques, the students will actaully design a sampling method, carry out that method, analyze that sample data, and eventually make predictions on a population using thier sample data. This unit is designed to teach the basics of statistics through data that individually sparks interest for the students.
