About This Chapter

Give us a chance to drastically improve your knowledge of topics revolving around data and probability. Our chapter will help you prepare for the different types of questions that you might be asked on the CHSPE Mathematics test.

CHSPE Mathematics: Data & Probability - Chapter Summary

Going through these helpful lessons can help you learn more about data concepts and the ways in which data is represented and analyzed. You will also have the chance to review more about these topics:

  • Probability of combinations and permutations
  • Definitions of math probability and central tendency
  • Dispersion and skewness
  • Simple, complimentary and compound events
  • Graphs and charts of scientific data
  • Tables of scientific data
  • Using quantitative data

When you go through these video lessons, you can quickly pick up important details that will help you prepare for the CHSPE test. Self-assessment quizzes are available to help you gauge your knowledge of different math-related material.

CHSPE Mathematics: Data & Probability Chapter Objectives

Taking the CHSPE Mathematics exam gives you the chance to review math topics to see if you are ready to graduate high school early. All of the subjects in this chapter are included on the math portion of the exam, which makes up approximately 51% of the entire exam. The questions are multiple-choice, and they require you to use the analytical skills that you have picked up by going through this chapter. The lessons in this chapter are composed in a way that makes learning fun, helping you easily prepare for the exam.

Interpreting Tables of Scientific Data: Practice Problems

1. Interpreting Tables of Scientific Data: Practice Problems

Complex table problems getting you down? Multi-question, situational problems don't have to be a drag on your testing performance. Learn how to apply three simple rules as we walk through two table problems together.

Interpreting Graphs and Charts of Scientific Data: Practice Problems

2. Interpreting Graphs and Charts of Scientific Data: Practice Problems

Do charts and graphs make problem-solving difficult? Complex problems with visual representations can drain your brain during a test. In this lesson, learn three simple rules for solving problems with charts and graphs. We'll try them out as we walk through two sample problems.

Making Estimates and Predictions using Quantitative Data

3. Making Estimates and Predictions using Quantitative Data

Watch this video lesson to learn how you can read a scatter plot to learn more about a particular situation. Also learn how you can make estimates within the range of data you have and predict what may happen outside the range of data.

How to Calculate the Probability of Combinations

4. How to Calculate the Probability of Combinations

To calculate the probability of a combination, you will need to consider the number of favorable outcomes over the number of total outcomes. Combinations are used to calculate events where order does not matter. In this lesson, we will explore the connection between these two essential topics.

How to Calculate the Probability of Permutations

5. How to Calculate the Probability of Permutations

In this lesson, you will learn how to calculate the probability of a permutation by analyzing a real-world example in which the order of the events does matter. We'll also review what a factorial is. We will then go over some examples for practice.

Measures of Central Tendency: Definitions & Practice

6. Measures of Central Tendency: Definitions & Practice

After watching this video, you will be able to explain the meaning of the terms central tendency, mode, mean and median. You will also be able to calculate these three values from provided data. A short quiz will follow.

Measures of Dispersion and Skewness

7. Measures of Dispersion and Skewness

Watch this video lesson to learn how you can describe your data using two different statistical characteristics. Learn what it means for your graph to have variability and what it means for your graph to be skewed.

Probability of Simple, Compound and Complementary Events

8. Probability of Simple, Compound and Complementary Events

Simple, compound, and complementary events are different types of probabilities. Each of these probabilities are calculated in a slightly different fashion. In this lesson, we will look at some real world examples of these different forms of probability.

What is Probability in Math? - Definition & Overview

9. What is Probability in Math? - Definition & Overview

Remember throwing a quarter and calling out heads or tails? Learn what this has to do with probability. Also learn how you can use your newly-learned skills from this lesson to help you decide whether you should play heads or tails at all!
