Statistics is the science of understanding data. This course begins with an overview of statistical design, visual representations of data, and measures of central tendency and explores how these elements can be applied to everyday real-life situations. This course aims to introduce students to the critical thinking skills they need to understand statistical topics that they may encounter in the popular media or their future careers.
Students will learn to critically evaluate the statistical information they encounter during everyday life, with a focus on becoming intelligent consumers, rather than producers, of data. Technology will be used to simplify calculation and display charts and graphs, and also to generate and access appropriate data for activities and projects. Graphing calculators are used extensively in this course.
