Title: How Random is Random?
Url: http://www.learner.org/interactives/statistics/howrandom.html
Publisher: Annenberg Media
Description: Created by Annenberg Media, this site is a tutorial that takes students through a mayoral election process while discussing the concept of randomness. Topics include margin of error and confidence levels. This is a fairly basic lesson, but it does provide a good example of applied statistical theory. Aside from simply addressing the statistics behind the process, the resource also discusses the actual physical process of taking political polls.
