PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

These reference pages cover representing outcomes, calculating simple and compound probabilities, mean, median, mode, range, and mean absolute deviation, box-and-whisker plots, and valid and invalid survey techniques. I recommend letting students keep the reference pages in front of them while they work on problems so you can refer them to the relevant section if they forget something rather than reteach it.

Representing Outcomes

1. Gives examples of representing outcomes using tree diagrams, organized lists, and tables.
2. Discusses the counting principle.

Calculating with Probabilities

1. Explains how to calculate a simple probability and a compound probability.
2. Explains how to make a prediction using multiplication or setting up a proportion.
3. Discusses the difference between theoretical probabilities and experimental or observed probabilities.

Measures of Center and Spread (and Mode)

1. Explains and gives examples of how to calculate mean, median, mode, range, and mean absolute deviation.
2. Explains how to visually compare the center and spread of two data distributions.

Box-and-Whisker Plots

1. Explains how to draw box-and-whisker plots.
2. Gives examples of creating a box-and-whisker plot for an even number of data points as well as an odd number.
3. Explains quartiles and interquartile range.

Surveys

1. Explains that random sampling leads to valid inferences.
2. Gives examples of good and bad sampling methods.
3. Discusses cause for a survey to be invalid such as not asking enough people, bias within the survey, and asking biased people.
