Data, Statistics and Probability - Chapter Summary and Learning Objectives

Data is a collection of values that can be compiled to present statistics and used to predict probability. In this chapter, our instructor shows you the different ways to interpret statistics, probability and data. Along with learning about statistical averages, you will learn concepts that lead you to be able to produce visual representations of data sets. This chapter also aims to train you in additional skills for properly organizing data on tables and understanding how data is showed across various types of visual and written representations. After completing this chapter, you should be able to:

  • Differentiate between dependent and independent events
  • Calculate probabilities when dealing with dependent and independent events
  • Calculate the mode, mean, median and range of data
  • Interpret and read data on schedules and tables
  • Read and interpret column/bar graphs and pie charts
