    8.1 Understand statistics as a process of making inferences about a population (parameter) based on results from a random sample (statistic). Acknowledge the role of randomization in using sample surveys, experiments, and observational studies to collect data and understand the limitations of generalizing results to populations (related to randomization).

    8.2 Understand simulation is useful for using data to make decisions.  Know how to carry out a simulation with data for the purposes of: estimating  population means or proportions, determining the margin of error for those estimates, and  determining statistical significance.

    8.3 Understand that samples can differ by chance.

    8.4 Understand not all data that is reported is valid. Reports should be evaluated based on source, design of the study, and data displays.
