• Introduce the logic of confidence intervals for proportions and the meaning of confidence levels

• Present the one-proportion z-interval formula (p-hat ± z*• S ) along with critical value (z*) and margin of error (z*• S )

• Review standard error for proportions

• Review the assumptions and conditions that are necessary for confidence intervals of proportions

• Practice calculating and interpreting one-proportion z-intervals

This packet discusses how to make confidence interval for a single proportion. We review the formula, show some examples, and let you try some out on your own.
