Statistics
This course is designed to help students leave high school equipped with the ability to make sense of statistics and view the world more clearly and accurately. This curriculum focuses on the fundamental concepts of inferential and descriptive statistics with emphasis on interpretation of statistical arguments including: Exploring and understanding categorical and quantitative data; the relationship between two variables; sampling methods; experimental design; randomness and probability; and confidence intervals and inference about means and proportions.  Graphing calculators, specifically the TI–83 Plus and TI–84 Plus, are utilized to further enhance the student’s understanding of the material.  All information can be located in the required text, Stats In Your World by Bock & Mariano.
