Math 7 Module 7 Statistics and Probability

Canil, M. (Meghan) ; Moore, S. (Shelley) ; Petrucci, L. (Laurie)


In this course you will continue your exploration of mathematics. You’ll have a chance to practise and review the math skills you already have as you learn new concepts and skills. This course will focus on math in the world around you and help you to increase your ability to think mathematically. Everyday in the newspaper and on television, we are bombarded with statistics. It’s important for us to understand where these numbers come from and to be able to discriminate between reliable and unreliable data. After all, you need to make decisions every day about what products you buy, where you get your news from and whether you should bring your umbrella of put on suncreen. This module will help you make sense of some of the statistics you see every day. We’ll start off by learning all about reading, interpreting and creating circle graphs. In the second section we’ll look at some sets of data and explore the ways that we can describe the sets of numbers. We’ll finish off the module with an exploration of probability. Section 7.1: Circle graphs; Section 7.2: Measures of central tendency; Section 7.3: Probability
