# Statistics and Probability

##### Students:
• collect, represent, analyse, interpret and evaluate data, assign and use probabilities, and make sound judgements

#### Stage 5.3outcomes

##### A student:
• represents data and interprets data displays made from objects

MAe-17SP
• gathers and organises data, displays data in lists, tables and picture graphs, and interprets the results

MA1-17SP
• selects appropriate methods to collect data, and constructs, compares, interprets and evaluates data displays, including tables, picture graphs and column graphs

MA2-18SP
• uses appropriate methods to collect data and constructs, interprets and evaluates data displays, including dot plots, line graphs and two-way tables

MA3-18SP
• collects, represents and interprets single sets of data, using appropriate statistical displays

MA4-19SP
• analyses single sets of data using measures of location, and range

MA4-20SP
• uses statistical displays to compare sets of data, and evaluates statistical claims made in the media

MA5.1-12SP
• uses quartiles and box plots to compare sets of data, and evaluates sources of data

MA5.2-15SP
• uses standard deviation to analyse data

MA5.3-18SP
• investigates relationships between two statistical variables, including their relationship over time

MA5.2-16SP
• investigates the relationship between numerical variables using lines of best fit, and explores how data is used to inform decision-making processes

MA5.3-19SP
• recognises and describes the element of chance in everyday events

MA1-18SP
• describes and compares chance events in social and experimental contexts

MA2-19SP
• conducts chance experiments and assigns probabilities as values between 0 and 1 to describe their outcomes

MA3-19SP
• represents probabilities of simple and compound events

MA4-21SP
• calculates relative frequencies to estimate probabilities of simple and compound events

MA5.1-13SP
• describes and calculates probabilities in multi-step chance experiments

MA5.2-17SP
