Ways of Thinking: Make Connections

Take notes about the approaches your classmates used to determine the number of each color of marble in the jar.

As your classmates present, ask questions such as:

  • How do your results compare for the five samples within each sample size group?
  • How do your results change as the sample size increases?
  • How are the numbers of each color marble related to each other, if at all?
  • Could the results of each sample within the same sample size group have been added together to make one big sample? Why or why not?
  • Which sample size do you think is the best?
