About This Chapter
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
|Probability of Independent and Dependent Events||Learn the difference between independent and dependent events. Learn how to calculate these probabilities.|
|How to Calculate Mean, Median, Mode and Range||Learn how to calculate mean, median, mode and range.|
|Organizing and Understanding Data with Tables and Schedules||Explain how to read and interpret data on tables and schedules.|
|Understanding Bar Graphs and Pie Charts||Explain how to read and interpret pie charts and column/bar graphs.|
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.
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.
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.
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.
