ab: Summary: The question motivating this study was the feasibility of students
in grade 10, aged about 15, assimilating the ideas of inference through
resampling procedures. The tool to be used to achieve repeated random
sampling was the software TinkerPlots, which includes a pseudo-random
Sampler capable of reassigning data to treatments and keeping a history
of such simulations to calculate frequencies of occurrence of
particular statistics to compare with experimental values. Two grade 10
teachers volunteered their classes for 5 weeks of a unit on
â€śstatistics and probability" to take part in the study. Although
lessons with detailed instructions were provided by the researcher, the
project, because it took place in actual classrooms, became an action
research project as the teachers adapted the material to their needs
and the needs of their students. Although there were several research
questions associated with the study, this chapter focusses on issues
associated with the studentsâ€™ use of TinkerPlots and the goal of
their appreciation of the nature of randomization and resampling.
