What is typical?

In the task What is Typical? (CensusAtSchool website), students are asked to review critically the claims made in an article written for the school newspaper.

They re-sample the year 8 data set using the Random Sampler on the CensusatSchool's site to assess the evidence supporting the claims.

The worksheet guides an investigation into the validity of the claims made in the article. The website also provides teacher solutions and an assessment rubric.

The intention is to raise the consciousness of students as critical readers of media reports.
