Quantifying Marine Microbes: A Simulation to Introduce Random Sampling

Quantifying Marine Microbes: A Simulation to Introduce Random Sampling

Colored beads in a bag are used to represent different types of microbes, with the bag itself representing the ocean. Working in groups, each learner randomly samples ten ��_microbes��� from the ��_ocean,��� and records the data. To learn about the inherent variability of random sampling, the learner then compares the composition of their individual samples, their group��_s pooled sample data, and that of the entire...
