Segments in this Video

Data Basics (00:52)


Data is a collection of facts. Data sets sometimes have patterns,

Tables (02:58)

Use tables to organize information and identify any patterns. A frequency table tracks how often something occurs; see an example.

Graphs (06:47)

Learn how to create a bar graph, histogram, and scatterplot using data tables. Line graphs depict changes that coincide with independent parameter changes. Circe graphs depict data comparisons.

Mean, Median, Mode and Range (08:48)

Measures of central tendency are the numbers that represent the center of the data. Learn their formulas and the guidelines for determining which measure to use.

Probability (07:02)

Learn four ways to express probability; probability is experimental or theoretical. See examples of probabilities for simple and compound events; compound events are dependent or independent. Use a tree diagram to find probabilities of a compound, dependent event.

It’s time to make math sense of our surroundings! We’ll start by collecting and organizing information from our daily lives. Students will learn how to interpret this information through visuals like lists, charts, tree diagrams, and graphs. The tour doesn’t stop here, though; we’ll move on to describing the outcomes based on probability, mean, median, mode, and range. The wold will make much more math sense after these exercises! Topics include: Data Basics; Tables; Mean, Median, Mode, and Range; Probability; and Graphs.
