# MA310 PROBABILITY & STATISTICS

**Course: **MA310 Probability & Statistics

**Grade: **10, 11, 12

**Subject Area:** Mathematics

**Type: **Standard

**Credits:** 1

**Course Information:**

This is a year long course that requires selection of both semesters: S1 and S2. This is a project based course designed to introduce students to the four themes of statistics, exploring data, sampling and experimentation, anticipating patterns and statistical inference. Real world applications will be a primary emphasis. Students will also be incorporating the use of technology and problem solving skills.

**Outcomes:**

Construct and interpret distributions with graphs, charts, and tables

Describe and compare distributions

Calculate numerical summaries by hand and using technology

Describe and interpret locations in a distribution (z-scores, percentiles, etc.)

Perform Normal distribution calculations including assessing normality

Construct and interpret scatterplots

Measure, calculate, and interpret correlation and a least square regression line -Interpret computer output

Describe different sampling methods (stratified, cluster, etc.)

Conduct simple random samples (using a random number table and technology)

Design comparative experiments (completely randomized, randomized block, and matched pairs designs)

Use rules of probability to construct venn diagrams, two-way tables, and determine probabilities

Apply the concept of discrete random variables to many different statistical settings

Calculate the expected values of a discrete random variable

Describe continuous random variables

Compute probabilities involving binomial and geometric random variables

**Prerequisites:**

MA300-S1 – Algebra II S1 AND MA300-S2 – Algebra II S2

**Corequisites:**

If you take this course, you must also take MA310-S2 – Probability & Statistics S2
