Data Analysis, Statistics, and Probability for Grades 1112

Formulate questions that can be addressed with data and collect, organize, and display relevant data to answer them 

Select and use appropriate statistical methods to analyze data 

Develop and evaluate inferences and predictions that are based on data 

Understand and apply basic concepts of probability 
Learning Standards
Students engage in problem solving, communicating, reasoning, connecting, and representing as they:
12.D.1 
Design surveys and apply random sampling techniques to avoid bias in the data collection.

12.D.2 
Select an appropriate graphical representation for a set of data and use appropriate statistics (e.g., quartile or percentile distribution) to communicate information about the data.

12.D.3 
Apply regression results and curve fitting to make predictions from data.

12.D.4 
Apply uniform, normal, and binomial distributions to the solutions of problems.

12.D.5 
Describe a set of frequency distribution data by spread (i.e., variance and standard deviation), skewness, symmetry, number of modes, or other characteristics. Use these concepts in everyday applications.

12.D.6 
Use combinatorics (e.g., "fundamental counting principle," permutations, and combinations) to solve problems, in particular, to compute probabilities of compound events. Use technology as appropriate.

12.D.7 
Compare the results of simulations (e.g., random number tables, random functions, and area models) with predicted probabilities. 
Exploratory Concepts and Skills
for Grades 1112 and SingleSubject Courses
 Use technology to perform linear, quadratic, and exponential regression on a set of data.
 Design surveys and apply random sampling techniques to avoid bias in the data collection.
