# Lesson Plan: Introduction to Hypothesis Testing Mathematics

This lesson plan includes the objectives, prerequisites, and exclusions of the lesson teaching students how to use hypothesis testing to assess claims about population parameters.

#### Objectives

Students will be able to

• distinguish between the null hypothesis and the alternative hypothesis ,
• identify the population parameter and test statistic from a given scenario,
• write appropriate null and alternative hypotheses to assess a statistical claim,
• distinguish between one- and two-tailed tests,
• understand how the significance level of the test affects the likelihood of rejecting the null hypothesis,
• understand the conclusion of a hypothesis test,
• identify the critical region corresponding to the rejection of the null hypothesis with a given significance level,
• identify the actual significance level of the test.

#### Prerequisites

Students should already be familiar with

• sampling methods,
• probability,
• binomial distribution.

#### Exclusions

Students will not cover

• sampling distribution,
• -value,
• type I vs. type II errors,
• hypothesis tests on means,
• hypothesis tests on proportions following nonbinomial distributions.
