Unit 4: Inferences and Conclusions

Overview

Inference is a conclusion reached on the basis of evidence and reasoning. Have you ever made a list of pros and cons? Making a decision based on your results of that list is the process of inference, which is an important math concept. This skill allows us to evaluate reports based on data, as well as use probabilities to make fair decisions. If you are unable to do this, then the world can manipulate you with false data and displays. The skills to develop during this unit are to use various simulation techniques to generate data and make inferences based on their results, generate and organize your own data, and understand and evaluate random processes underlying statistical experiments.
