    I am really excited to teach the first lesson of the year. I will be using a lesson that I decided to skip last year because I felt I should do procedures on the first day (I’d like to pivot away from that). This lesson will have students exploring. I will catch their attention with a short video that they will notice and wonder. Students will then run a simulation to model the event they see in their video and collect data. We will then use it to calculate a simple proportion of dots. Near the end of the lesson, students will have calculated a p-value, without knowing this is what they are doing it. I will use the graphs generated during this lesson to point out to them throughout the year, that they already know how to calculate this very important HOLY GRAIL of statistics.
