CONTENT:
Classification and tabulation of data; frequency distribution or table, and their representation by pie charts, bar charts, line graphs, histograms, range, frequency ploygons, interquartile and semiinterquartile range as measures of dispersion (spread); mean, median and mode as measures of central tendency; simple, experimental and theoretical probability.
Grouped frequency, cumulative frequency, simple probability.

SPECIFIC OBJECTIVES: The student should be able to:

1. 
Construct a simple frequency table for a given set of data

2. 
Given class size, determine class interval, boundaries and class limits for a given set of data;

3. 
Construct a grouped frequency table for a given set of data;

4. 
Draw and use pie charts, bar charts, line graphs, histograms, and frequency polygons;

5. 
Determine the mean, median and mode for a set of data;

6. 
Determine when it is most appropriate to use mean, median or mode as the average for a set of data;

7. 
Determine the range, interquartile and semiinterquartile ranges for a set of data;

8. 
Determine experimental and theoretical probabilities of simple events;

9. 
Apply simple statistical methods to analyze data and make appropriate inferences;

10. 
Use investigations to make inferences and generalizations utilizing the concepts listed above.

11. 
Use the midpoint of the class interval to estimate the mean of data presented in grouped frequency tables;

12. 
Construct a cumulative frequency table for a given set of data;

13. 
Determine from the cumulative frequency table, the proportion and/or percentage of the sample above or below a given value;

14. 
Draw and use a cumulative frequency curve (Ogive);

15. 
Estimate the median of a grouped set of data;

16. 
Analyze statistical data, commenting on the averages, the spread and the shape of the frequency distribution;

17. 
Use theoretical probability in chance experiments, with equally likely outcomes, to predict the expected value of a given set of outcomes.
