CCSS S-IC.5 asks students to use simulations to evaluate if two treatments are significantly different. Using an episode of Mythbusters, we will explore simulations to challenge their conclusion about contagious yawns. Simulations will be performed using cards, calculators, and software. A variety of other contexts for simulations will be provided.
