The Poisson distribution is here used to illustrate transformation and bootstrap techniques in order to construct a confidence interval for a mean. A comparison is made between the derived intervals and the Wald and score confidence intervals. The imaginary discussion takes place in a classroom, where the teacher and the students have previously discussed and evaluated the Wald and score confidence intervals. While step by step interactively getting acquainted with new techniques, the students will learn about the effects of e.g. asymmetry and ways of dealing with such a phenomenon. Students will be given tasks in groups to work on and the results are discussed in the classroom with immediate feedback from the teacher. We will follow the teacher and the students during five days of lectures in a Master's level statistical inference course with emphasis on asymptotically motivated methods.
