Statistics and Probability
SP1  Statistics
In this unit students will work on using proper sampling methods to make generalizations about a population. In addition, students will interpret data using dot plots, histograms, box plots and measures of central tendency. Additionally, students will distinguish between correlation and causation using scatter plots.

Represent data with dot plots, histograms, or box plots

Use mean and median to compare data sets

Interpret relative frequencies in the context of the data

Distinguish between correlation and causation
SP2  Probability
This unit focuses on finding the probability of an event, as well as the probability of compound events. For example, what is the probability of flipping a coin and getting a heads and rolling a sixsided number cube and getting a 3? In addition, students will need to determine whether two events are independent and justify the conclusion.
Core skills of this unit:

Determine the probability of an event

Determine the probability of compound events

Make inferences and justify conclusions

Determine whether two events are independent, and justify the conclusion
