Yesterday we created a sampling distribution of sample means. Students took samples, calculated the sample means and wrote each mean on a sticker for the dotplot.  Today, students repeated the process for samples of size 10. Make sure to save your dotplot from the previous day to post them next to each other. You'll also want to use the same scale on the axes. Students noticed the variability of the dotplot decreased.
