The parameter is the mean amount of extracurricular activities in which all high school students participate.

The statistic is the mean amount of extracurricular activities in which the sample of high school students participate.

The variable could be the amount of extracurricular activities by one high school student. Let X = the amount of extracurricular activities by one high school student.
