## STEM Lessons - Model Eliciting Activity

Students will use data to decide the ideal candidate for a college scholarship by computing the mean and the standard deviation. The student will present the data using the normal distribution and make recommendations based on the findings. Students will recognize that not all data can be presented in this format.

Model Eliciting Activities, MEAs, are open-ended, interdisciplinary problem-solving activities that are meant to reveal students’ thinking about the concepts embedded in realistic situations. Click here to learn more about MEAs and how they can transform your classroom.

## MFAS Formative Assessments

Students are asked to select a histogram for which it would be appropriate to apply the 68-95-99.7 rule.

Students are asked to find the probability that an outcome of a normally distributed variable is between two given values using both a Standard Normal Distribution Table and technology.

Students are asked to scale and label a normal curve given the mean and standard deviation of a data set with a normal distribution.

Students are asked to find the probability that an outcome of a normally distributed variable is greater than a given value.

Students are asked to find the probability that an outcome of a normally distributed variable is between a standard deviation level.

## Problem-Solving Tasks

This problem solving task challenges students to answer probability questions about SAT scores, using distribution and mean to solve the problem.

Type: Problem-Solving Task

The purpose of this task is to have students complete normal distribution calculations and to use properties of normal distributions to draw conclusions.

Type: Problem-Solving Task

This task requires students to use the normal distribution as a model for a data distribution. Students must use given means and standard deviations to approximate population percentages.

Type: Problem-Solving Task

## Virtual Manipulative

With this online tool, students adjust the standard deviation and sample size of a normal distribution to see how it will affect a histogram of that distribution. This activity allows students to explore the effect of changing the sample size in an experiment and the effect of changing the standard deviation of a normal distribution. Tabs at the top of the page provide access to supplemental materials, including background information about the topics covered, a description of how to use the application, and exploration questions for use with the java applet.
