•
Students will be able to determine all pertinent statistical measures for a given set of data.
•
Students will be able to use appropriate counting techniques and compute the correct probability of a
given event.
•
Students will understand the probability density curve, be able to represent probability geometrically,
and find the probability of a given event using a statistical table or statistical software.
