# Ch 5: Basic Probability & Data

This chapter can help young learners study basic probability and data in preparation for a test or as a supplement to class lessons. Parents and teachers can use these lessons to help younger students go over vocabulary words, definitions, and problem-solving strategies related to data, tables, graphs and more.

## Basic Probability & Data - Chapter Summary

This chapter has been designed to assist young students who are learning about basic probability and data. Our instructors use a step-by-step approach to teach students about the different areas of this mathematics topic. Students go over steps for data simplification, data interpretation, transforming data into visual formats, displaying survey question data, and using data to make decisions.

The lessons also demonstrate the various types of visual data formats. With the help of hypothetical information and sample data, instructors show students how information can be compiled into various formats. By the close of the chapter, students will be prepared to do the following:

• Describe what probability is
• Identify the steps for arranging and ordering events based on likelihood
• Explain techniques for reading and understanding mathematics tables
• Read and organize data on schedules and tables
• Understand and use two-way tables and pictographs
• Read bar graphs, tally charts, and line graphs

Each of our lessons includes a short, multiple-choice quiz that you can use to verify the progress of your students. The quiz questions may ask students about true statements or definitions, or students could be asked to solve sample problems. The quizzes can be taken online or printed out as worksheets.
