- HSS-IC.A.1Understand statistics as a process for making inferences about population parameters based on a random sample from that population.*
- HSS-IC.A.2Decide 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?
