3.12 Activity: Statistical estimates and sample size

In a previous activity, we compared statistical estimates from random samples. Each group drew a different random sample of size n=10 from a population of 1,013,572 people. Each group used their random sample to make a statistical estimate for the average height in the population.

What if we had used a bigger sample size? In this activity, we’ll explore the research question,

How does sample size affect a statistical estimate?
