Common Core Math: High School Statistics & Probability

In high school, students learn to summarize and interpret data using visual, numerical and analytic methods. Students represent data in plots, compute summary statistics and find equations that approximate data trends. Students also compute probabilities of related events using the laws of probability. Ultimately, this knowledge is translated to the real world as students use their knowledge of probability to analyze expected outcomes and make decisions about chance events.
