 Note 2 Before examining specific problems at this grade level with an eye toward statistical reasoning, you will watch a teacher (who has also taken the course) teaching in her classroom. The purpose in viewing the video is not to reflect on the teacher's methods or teaching style. Instead, look closely at how the teacher brings out statistical ideas while engaging her students in statistical problem solving. You might want to review the four-step process for solving statistical problems. What are the four steps? What characterizes each step?

 Note 3 The 2000 United States Census defines a household as one or more persons living in a housing unit. One person who owns or rents the residence is designated as the householder. For the purposes of examining family and household composition, two types of households are defined: family and non-family. A family household has at least two members related by blood, marriage, or adoption, one of whom is the householder. A non-family household can either be a person living alone or a householder who shares the housing unit with non-relatives only -- for example, boarders or roommates. The non-relatives of the householder may be related to one another.
