High School Statistics and Probability Common Core Resources
Here you will find all high school statistics & probability resources to guide and support mathematics teaching and learning.
These resources are organized by mathematical strand and refer to specific Common Core math content standards.
Statistics and Probability: Interpreting Categorical and Quantitative Data (S-ID)
Statistics and Probability: Conditional Probability and the Rules of Probability (S-CP)
Describe events as subsets of a sample space (the set of outcomes) using characteristics (or categories) of the outcomes, or as unions, intersections, or complements of other events (“or,” “and,” “not”).Problems of the MonthPerformance Assessment Tasks
Understand the conditional probability of A given B as P(A and B)/P(B), and interpret independence of A and B as saying that the conditional probability of A given B is the same as the probability of A, and the conditional probability of B given A is the same as the probability of B.Problems of the Month
Construct and interpret two-way frequency tables of data when two categories are associated with each object being classified. Use the two-way table as a sample space to decide if events are independent and to approximate conditional probabilities. For example, collect data from a random sample of students in your school on their favorite subject among math, science, and English. Estimate the probability that a randomly selected student from your school will favor science given that the student is in tenth grade. Do the same for other subjects and compare the results.Problems of the MonthPerformance Assessment Tasks
