### Objectives of the FTCE: Data Analysis and Probability Chapter

If you want to work as a K-12 teacher at a public school in Florida, you'll need to earn certification. One step in the certification process is passing the FTCE General Knowledge Test, which will assess your skills in mathematics, reading, English and writing. The math subtest features 45 multiple-choice questions, including approximately 20% focused on data analysis and probability. You'll have 100 minutes to complete this subtest, and you'll be able to use a four-function calculator provided by your testing center.

Our video lessons on data analysis and probability each feature a self-assessment quiz and a video. While you can complete these lessons in any manner you choose, you might first take the quiz to identify areas where you need extra work. You'll still be able to test your skills after watching the video; in fact, you can take the quiz as many times as you'd like to make sure your knowledge is up to par.
