Data, Probability and Statistics
Tennessee Diploma Project
Grade range: 
9 to 12
Conceptual StrandThe Data Analysis and Probability Standard recommends that students formulate questions that can be answered using data and addresses what is involved in gathering and using the data wisely. The basic concepts and applications of probability are also addressed, with an emphasis on the way that probability and statistics are related.Guiding QuestionHow do students experiences with the collection and analysis of data enable them to reason statistically and understand the various purposes of surveys, observational studies, and experiments?
Elements within this Standard
Course Level Expectation
Analyze, interpret, employ and construct accurate statistical graphs.
Develop the basic principles of geometric probability.
Check For Understanding
Determine the area of each sector and the degree measure of each intercepted arc in a pie chart.
Translate from one representation of data to another (e.g., bar graph to pie graph, pie graph to bar graph, table to pie graph, pie graph to chart) accurately
Estimate or calculate simple geometric probabilities (e.g., number line, area model, using length, circles).
State Performance Indicator
Use area to solve problems involving geometric probability (e.g. dartboard problem, shaded sector of a circle, shaded region of a geometric figure).
