Learning Objectives of the Probability and Statistics throughout the Curriculum linking course:

In addition to and in coordination with the general goals of the M302 courses, students in M302: Prob-Stats will...

  • Learn how to pose conceptually focused problems in high school probability and statistics.
  • Connect probability and statistics concepts vertically through middle school and high school.
  • Examine ways to help students justify and explain the use of combinations, permutations, and the counting principle.
  • Design thought-provoking high school tasks related to probability and statistics.
  • Recognize how theoretical ideas from probability and statistics are connected to Indiana and NCTM Standards.
  • Apply the addition and multiplication rules of probability to problems in context
  • Explore methods of data collection and analysis.
  • Learn how to use various technologies effectively to analyze and summarize one-variable data.
  • Develop conceptual and procedural understanding of the purpose and use of simulations.
  • Develop conceptual and procedural understanding of the purpose and use of experimental probability.
  • Develop conceptual and procedural understanding of the purpose and use of binomial probability.
  • Investigate the application of probability in games and television shows.

Summary of Objectives:

The learning objectives listed above focus on probability and statistical content throughout grades 7-12, plus the creation and analysis of problems in context. I expect you to understand the content coming into the class; therefore we will focus on problem solving activities appropriate for the particular grade level and standards.
