    Common Core SS Math Standard

    Make inferences and justify conclusions from sample surveys, experiments, and observational studies

    3. Recognize the purposes of and differences among sample surveys, experiments, and observational studies; explain how randomization relates to each. 4. Use data from a sample survey to estimate a population mean or proportion; develop a margin of error through the use of simulation models for random sampling. 5. Use data from a randomized experiment to compare two treatments; use simulations to decide if differences between parameters are significant.

    6. Evaluate reports based on data.

    Lesson Objective: To show how math is used in everyday culinary.

    Materials: Culinary warm-up worksheet

    THE "7 ELEMENTS" TEACHER NOTES (and answer key)
