# Ch 56: NMTA Math: Sampling

New Mexico now uses the National Evaluation Series (NES) Math examination for teacher certification instead of the NMTA Math examination. Prepare to answer the examination's sampling questions by studying this chapter's online video lessons.

## NMTA Math: Sampling - Chapter Summary

The video lessons in this chapter examine sampling as a method of gathering information on a number of things or people. Watch the tutorial lessons to prepare to answer sampling questions on the NMTA examination. Recall what you've studied about stratified random and simple random sampling research techniques, and perhaps learn a few new concepts along the way. This chapter might help you to:

• Define and explain how to use simple random, cluster random, stratified random and systematic random sampling
• Demonstrate the central limit theorem
• Discuss the use of sampling distributions

You'll find that these lessons are convenient because they allow you to brush up on sampling facts that you may have forgotten as you prepare to take the NMTA Math examination. You can learn interactively at any location by using your Web-connected technology. Ask questions of the math experts and use the corresponding written transcripts as an extra study resource. When you're ready, take the self-assessment quizzes to test your retention of the chapter's material.

### NMTA Math: Sampling Chapter Objectives

Sampling techniques, such as those you've studied in this chapter, are covered in the Statistics, Probability and Discrete Mathematics section of the NMTA Math examination. The equivalent of 19% of the entire test score, this section will determine your ability to solve problems with sampling and to teach related principles and techniques to your students. There are 150 multiple-choice questions on the computer-based examination.
