Unit Objectives

This sample material consists of the two investigations of Lesson 2, "Characteristics of Binomial Distributions." In the first investigation, students examine the shape, center, and spread of binomial distributions for the number of and the proportion of successes. In the second investigation, students examine and apply the simple formulas for the mean and standard deviation of a binomial probability distribution.
Throughout the curriculum, interesting problem contexts serve as the foundation for instruction. As lessons unfold around these problem situations, classroom instruction tends to follow a common pattern as elaborated under Instructional Design.
