Abstract: This research study examined how senior secondary school students develop understanding of the core statistical concepts of "sample" and "sampling" when making statistical inferences; and how students build interconnections between these concepts. This was observed as students engaged in making interval estimates of a population parameter within a computer-simulated environment. Activities involved sampling and estimating across three different sample size situations followed by a reflection stage to compare the estimates. Results of the four stages of the students' activities are presented. Discussion of the results will be shared at the SRTL-7 forum.
