How confident do you want to be???

Implications of the Central Limit Theorem

What do you know?

What do you need to know?

How confident are you of this answer?

What is the average number of years that a random Georgia Teacher has been teaching?

Although there is no one right choice of the classes in a histogram, too few classes will give a “skyscraper” graph, with all values in a few classes with tall bars and too many will produce a “pancake” graph, with most classes having one or no observations.

Neither choice will give a good picture of the shape of the distribution.

Five classes is a good minimum.

Be sure classes all have the same width. Then area is determined by height and all classes are fairly represented.

If you use a computer or graphing calculator, beware of letting the device choose the classes.

Histogram Tips

In other words, if the number is important – the mean and median have a meaning, then you need a histogram.

If the number merely denotes a category, you need a bar graph.

Histograms

Is the first result a histogram?

How do you know?

Is the second result a histogram?

How do you know?

Histograms

(Sports) Average height of a high school basketball player

(Food) Number of chips in a chocolate chip cookie

(Cars) Price for a gallon of gas

(Social) Average number of Facebook hits a day

What might our students like to know?

Multiply our z-score (which gives us the desired interval) by the standard error of our mean (which gives us how far off we might be) to get our margin of error.

Add and subtract that from our mean.

How high? How low?

Is the number of years of teaching experience of the participants in this room normal?

Why or why not?

Is the number of years of teaching experience of math teachers in Georgia normal?

Why or why not?

What type of sample is this?

If we took another such sample, would we get similar results?

Why or why not?

Is this Normal?

You are getting 2 sticky notes.

On one of them, write the unit with which you are most uncomfortable. On the other, write the number of years you have been teaching.

Who are you?

What percent of the scores will be below our upper bound?

What is the z-score associated with that percentage (percentile rank)?

This number is our z-score.

What is the average number of years that a random Georgia Teacher has been teaching?

Unit 6

Mathematical Modeling

: In this unit students synthesize and generalize what they have learned about a variety of function families.

Unit 1

Inferences and Conclusions from Data

: Students apply methods from probability and statistics to draw inferences and conclusions from data.

Unit 2

Polynomial Functions

: This unit develops the structural similarities between the system of polynomials and the system of integers. Students will multiply, divide, identify zeros, make connections and culminate with the Fundamental Theorem of Algebra

Unit 5

Trigonometric Functions

: Building on their previous work with functions, and on their work with trigonometric ratios and circles in Analytic Geometry, students now use the coordinate plane to extend trigonometry to model periodic phenomena.

Unit 3

Rational and Radical Relationships

6th Grade Statistics and Probability (unit 6)

• Develop understanding of statistical variability.

• Summarize and describe distributions

MCC6.SP.1. Recognize a statistical question as one that anticipates variability in the data related to the question and accounts for it in the answers.

For example, “How old am I?” is not a statistical question, but “How old are the students in my school?” is a statistical question because one anticipates variability in students’ ages.

MCC6.SP.2. Understand that a set of data collected to answer a statistical question has a distribution which can be described by its center, spread, and overall shape.

MCC7.SP.4. Use measures of center and measures of variability for numerical data from random samples to draw informal comparative inferences about two populations. For example, decide whether the words in a chapter of a seventh-grade science book are generally longer than the words in a chapter of a fourth-grade science book.

MCC7.SP.3. Informally assess the degree of visual overlap of two numerical data distributions with similar variability, measuring the difference between the centers by expressing it as a multiple of a measure of variability. For example, the mean height of players on the basketball team is 10 cm greater than the mean height of players on the soccer team, about twice the variability (mean absolute deviation) on either team; on a dot plot, the separation between the two distributions of heights is noticeable.

MCC7.SP.2. Use data from a random sample to draw inferences about a population with an unknown characteristic of interest. Generate multiple samples (or simulated samples) of the same size to gauge the variation in estimates or predictions. For example, estimate the mean word length in a book by randomly sampling words from the book; predict the winner of a school election based on randomly sampled survey data. Gauge how far off the estimate or prediction might be.

7th grade Statistics and Probability

• Use random sampling to draw inferences about a population.

• Draw informal comparative inferences about two populations.

• Investigate chance processes and develop, use, and evaluate probability models.

7th grade Unit 4 Stats

Apply and extend previous understandings of measurement and interpreting data.

MCC7.SP.1. Understand that statistics can be used to gain information about a population by examining a sample of the population; generalizations about a population from a sample are valid only if the sample is representative of that population. Understand that random sampling tends to produce representative samples and support valid inferences.

MCC8.SP.4 Understand that patterns of association can also be seen in bivariate categorical data by displaying frequencies and relative frequencies in a two way table. Construct and interpret a two way table summarizing data on two categorical variables collected from the same subjects.

MCC8.SP.3 Use the equation of a linear model to solve problems in the context of bivariate measurement data, interpreting the slope and intercept. For example, in a linear model for a biology experiment, interpret a slope of 1.5 cm/hr as meaning that an additional hour of sunlight each day is associated with an additional 1.5 cm in mature plant height.

MCC8.SP.2 Know that straight lines are widely used to model relationships between two quantitative variables. For scatter plots that suggest a linear association, informally fit a straight line, and informally assess the model fit by judging the closeness of the data points to the line.

8th Grade Statistics and Probability

• Investigate patterns of association in bivariate data.

MCC8.SP.1 Construct and interpret scatter plots for bivariate measurement data to investigate patterns of association between two quantities. Describe patterns such as clustering, outliers, positive or negative association, linear association, and nonlinear association.

Coordinate Algebra

Interpreting Categorical and Quantitative Data S.ID

Summarize, represent, and interpret data on a single count or measurement variable

MCC9-12.S.ID.1 Represent data with plots on the real number line (dot plots, histograms, and box plots).

• Choose appropriate graphs to be consistent with numerical data: dot plots, histograms, and boxplots.

MCC9-12.S.ID.2 Use statistics appropriate to the shape of the data distribution to compare center (median, mean) and spread (interquartile range) of two or more different data sets.

• Include review of Mean Absolute Deviation as a measure of variation.

MCC9-12.S.ID.3 Interpret differences in shape, center, and spread in the context of the data sets, accounting for possible effects of extreme data points (outliers).

• Students will examine graphical representations to determine if data are symmetric, skewed left, or skewed right and how the shape of the data affects descriptive statistics.

MCC9-12.S.ID.5 Summarize categorical data for two categories in two-way frequency tables. Interpret relative frequencies in the context of the data (including joint, marginal, and conditional relative frequencies). Recognize possible associations and trends in the data

MCC9-12.S.ID.6 Represent data on two quantitative variables on a scatter plot, and describe how the variables are related.

MCC9-12.S.ID.6a Fit a function to the data; use functions fitted to data to solve problems in the context of the data. Use given functions or choose a function suggested by the context. Emphasize linear, quadratic, and exponential models.

MCC9-12.S.ID.6b Informally assess the fit of a function by plotting and analyzing residuals.

MCC9-12.S.ID.6c Fit a linear function for a scatter plot that suggests a linear association.

Interpret linear models

MCC9-12.S.ID.7 Interpret the slope (rate of change) and the intercept (constant term) of a linear model in the context of the data.

MCC9-12.S.ID.8 Compute (using technology) and interpret the correlation coefficient of a linear fit.

MCC9-12.S.ID.9 Distinguish between correlation and causation.

MCC9-12.S.ID.4 Use the mean and standard deviation of a data set to fit it to a normal distribution and to estimate population percentages. Recognize that there are data sets for which such a procedure is not appropriate. Use calculators, spreadsheets, and tables to estimate areas under the normal curve.

done so far in your classroom?

Unit 2 Polynomial Functions

This unit develops the structural similarities between the system of polynomials and the system of integers.

Students draw on analogies between polynomial arithmetic and base-ten computation, focusing on properties of operations, particularly the distributive property.

Students connect multiplication of polynomials with multiplication of multi-digit integers, and division of polynomials with long division of integers.

Students identify zeros of polynomials and make connections between zeros of polynomials and solutions of polynomial equations.

The unit culminates with the fundamental theorem of algebra.

Unit 3 Rational and Radical Relationships OVERVIEW

In this unit students will:

• Explore Rational and Radical Functions

• Determine rational numbers extend the arithmetic of integers by allowing division by all numbers except zero. Similarly, rational expressions extend the arithmetic of polynomials by allowing division by all polynomials except the zero polynomial

• Notice the arithmetic of rational expressions is governed by the same rules as the arithmetic of rational numbers

• Investigate the properties of simple rational and radical functions and then expand their knowledge of the graphical behavior and characteristics of more complex rational functions

• Recall and make use of their knowledge of polynomial functions as well as compositions of functions to investigate the characteristics of these more complex rational functions

• Apply these rational and radical functions with an emphasis on interpretation of real world phenomena as it relates to certain characteristics of the rational expressions

• Understand that not all solutions generated algebraically are actually solutions to the equations and extraneous solutions will be explored

• Solve equations and inequalities involving rational and radical functions
