High School Statistics & Probability

Common Core State Standards Overview for High School Statistics & Probability

Interpreting Categorical & Quantitative Data
  • Summarize, represent, and interpret data on a single count or measurement variable.
  • Summarize, represent, and interpret data on two categorical and quantitative variables.
  • Interpret linear models.
Making Inferences & Justifying Conclusions
  • Understand and evaluate random processes underlying statistical experiments.
  • Make inferences and justify conclusions from sample surveys, experiments and observational studies.
Conditional Probability & the Rules of Probability
  • Understand independence and conditional probability and use them to interpret data.
  • Use the rules of probability to compute probabilities of compound events in a uniform probability model.
Using Probability to Make Decisions
  • Calculate expected values and use them to solve problems.
  • Use probability to evaluate outcomes of decisions.

High school statistics and probability classes challenge students from the ninth grade to the twelfth grade, going beyond merely calculating the percentages of answers on a poll or the frequency of certain events. Every statistician knows factors like bias, sample size, and the randomness of test samples can skew results, so proper management of data is crucial. To learn the methods and calculations for interpreting data based on quantitative variables, understanding independence and conditional probability, and otherwise dealing with statistics and probability, high school mathematics students need a grounding in related mathematical vocabulary. This is where our extensive word lists are most valuable. Read MoreRead Less

The math vocabulary lists are based on the Common Core High School Math Standards. VocabularySpellingCity has selected the high school math words that apply to the key math concepts and written level-appropriate high school math definitions combined with meaningful example sentences. High school students can use these materials for reinforcement to build understanding or assessment. Teachers can import the lists into their account and then edit or extend the lists for their own purposes.

Playing word games that teach statistics and probability vocabulary, high school students absorb the terminology in a mathematical context. Conforming to the Common Core State Standards, the word lists below can be used with printable worksheets, interactive flashcards and online quizzes and assessments, preparing high school mathematics students to learn key concepts in statistics and probability. Accurate management of data is becoming more important every day, so high school students with a strong foundation in statistics and probability increase their odds of success!
