Let's do the activity!

Mrs. Gallas claims she is an 80% free throw shooter. To prove her skills, she shoots 50 free throws and makes 32 shots. Is Mrs. Gallas exaggerating about her free throw skills?

To test Mrs. Gallas’ claim, we will assume she really is an 80% free throw shooter and investigate what results could happen by chance alone.

For a more detailed discussion, see this Stats Medic lesson plan.
