        Random Sampling and Estimation: Lake Victoria

        Learn how scientists in Kenya are trying to determine the populations of endangered species in the Lake Victoria region. This video focuses on how random sampling and statistics are used during conservation efforts and how the mean can be used to estimate the size of a population, taking math out of the classroom and into real world problem solving. This resource is part of the Math at the Core: Middle School Collection.
