What do you interpret the following 2 standards are referring to? They
are common core standards for a statistics chapter for an algebra II
level course. Sounds to me like they are thinking of p-values,
hypothesis testing, type I and II error, chi-square test, maybe
distribution. These are pretty uncommon topics for an algebra II
course (at least in my state). Any other thoughts?

S.IC.3: Use data from a randomized experiment to compare two
treatments; use simulations to decide if differences between
parameters are significant

S.IC.2 Decide if a specified model is consistent with results from a
given data-generating process, e.g., using simulation. For example, a
model says a spinning coin falls heads up with probability 0.5. Would
a result of 5 tails in a row cause you to question the model
