Friday Bar graphs and pie charts Amounts or frequency of occurrence, axes, range of values, intervals, circular graphs, sectors

5 Lessons in Chapter 22: Data, Statistics, & Probability Lesson Plans
Probability of Independent and Dependent Events

1. Probability of Independent and Dependent Events

Sometimes probabilities need to be calculated when more than one event occurs. These types of compound events are called independent and dependent events. Through this lesson, we will look at some real-world examples of how to calculate these probabilities.

How to Calculate Mean, Median, Mode & Range

2. How to Calculate Mean, Median, Mode & Range

Measures of central tendency can provide valuable information about a set of data. In this lesson, explore how to calculate the mean, median, mode and range of any given data set.

Organizing and Understanding Data with Tables & Schedules

3. Organizing and Understanding Data with Tables & Schedules

In math, when we have to deal with a lot of data, having a visual format to present all the data becomes very useful. Watch this video lesson to learn how you can take advantage of two of these visual formats.

Understanding Bar Graphs and Pie Charts

4. Understanding Bar Graphs and Pie Charts

In this lesson, we will examine two of the most widely used types of graphs: bar graphs and pie charts. These two graphs can provide the reader with a comparison of the different data that is displayed.

What Is a T-Test? - Procedure, Interpretation & Examples

5. What Is a T-Test? - Procedure, Interpretation & Examples

T-tests are used to compare two means to assess whether they are from the same population. T-tests presume that both groups are normally distributed and have relatively equal variances. The t-statistic is distributed on a curve that is based on the number of degrees of freedom (df). There are three kinds of t-tests: independent-samples, paired-samples, and one-sample.
