Part of the The Workshop Mathematics Project book series (TIMS)


You have been studying properties of randomness, specifically investigating how sample statistics vary from sample to sample under repeated random sampling from a population. This topic asks you to continue to develop your understanding of sampling distributions. The contexts in which you study these sampling distributions will introduce the very important idea of statistical significance.
