# Unit 8: Statistics And Probability

Students will master the process of collecting, organizing and representing data and also understand how information can be used and displayed to make an argument.  This unit will also focus on developing your student’s ability to sample and experiment, analyze data and find patterns in that data to better understand the world around us.  Students will also explore basic probability and chance to make simple predictions of future events.

#### Theorems Your Student Will Discover:

Probability

How to determine the probability of a single event

How to determine the probability of compound events

How to determine the probability of conditional events

How to determine the number of outcomes of a permutation

How to determine the number of outcomes of a combination

Data Analysis

How to find the mean of a set of data

How to find a data element given the mean

How to find missing elements of a set of data given either the mean, median, mode, range or a combination of them

Displaying Data

How to create a box and whisker plot given a set of data

How to create a histogram plot given a set of data

How to create a pie chart given a set of data

How to create a scatter plot given a set of data

How to identify correlation given a scatter plot or set of data

How to draw a line of best fit

Pre-Algebra

How to write a linear equation given a set of data
