SP Statistics and Probability

  • SP.1 Collect, display and analyze data to solve problems.

    • SP.1.1 Critique ways in which data is presented in circle graphs, line graphs, bar graphs and pictographs.

      • SP.1.1.1 Compare information provided for the same data set by a given set of graphs, including circle graphs, line graphs, bar graphs and pictographs, to determine the strengths and limitations of each graph.

      • SP.1.1.2 Identify the advantages and disadvantages of different graphs, including circle graphs, line graphs, bar graphs and pictographs, in representing a given set of data.

      • SP.1.1.3 Justify the choice of a graphical representation for a given situation and its corresponding data set.

      • SP.1.1.4 Explain how the format of a given graph, such as the size of the intervals, the width of the bars and the visual representation, may lead to misinterpretation of the data.

      • SP.1.1.5 Explain how a given formatting choice could misrepresent the data.

      • SP.1.1.6 Identify conclusions that are inconsistent with a given data set or graph, and explain the misinterpretation.

  • SP.2 Use experimental or theoretical probabilities to represent and solve problems involving uncertainty.

    • SP.2.2 Solve problems involving the probability of independent events.

      • SP.2.2.1 Determine the probability of two given independent events; and verify the probability, using a different strategy.

      • SP.2.2.2 Generalize and apply a rule for determining the probability of independent events.

      • SP.2.2.3 Solve a given problem that involves determining the probability of independent events.
