Data Analysis: TV Survey

TV Survey is an open-ended problem that was designed to introduce students to this real-life application of sampling. Because TV is a part of students' daily life, this scenario is accessible to all students. And, because students often exhibit a keen sense of "fairness," they are sometimes disconcerted by the notion that a small group of people get to decide what all of us get to watch on TV.

TV Survey was also designed to address different Bloom levels so that students have to use higher-order thinking skills to analyze, synthesize and evaluate information about the sampling method.
