Algebra 2, Statistics Unit
This Algebra 2 unit is a continuation of the statistics studied in Algebra 1. Students will review graphical displays, especially box plots. Students will explore the numerical methods of data collection, including calculating measures of central tendency and measures of variation. Students will learn about normal distributions and to estimate normal probabilities. Students will examine methods for surveys, experiments, and observational studies; as well as data gathering and determining statistical significance of experimental results. Sampling distributions and estimation of population values and margin of error from such distributions will be explored during this unit. Informal hypothesis testing will be done using resampling simulations. Students will evaluate current media reports that are based on data.
