## Standard 4.0 Knowledge of Statistics

Students will collect, organize, display, analyze, or interpret data to make decisions or predictions.

### Topic

A. Data Displays

#### Indicator

• 1. Collect, organize, and display data
##### Objectives
1. Collect data by conducting surveys to answer a question
2. Organize and display data in line plots and frequency tables using a variety of categories and sets of data

### Topic

B. Data Analysis

#### Indicator

• 1. Analyze data
##### Objectives
1. Interpret line plots
###### Assessment limit: Use no more than 20 pieces of data with a range no more than 10 and whole numbers (0 – 100)
2. Interpret line graphs

#### Indicator

• 2. Describe a set of data
##### Objectives
1. Determine median, mode, and range
###### Assessment limit: Use no more than 8 pieces of data and whole numbers (0 – 100)
2. Model the mean of a set of data

Note: Highlighted assessment limits will be tested in the no calculator section of MSA. In the assessment limit, (0-10) or (-10 to 10) means all numbers in the problem or the answer will fall within the range of 0 to 10 (including endpoints) or -10 to 10 (including endpoints), respectively. All content standards are tested in MSA but not all objectives. Objectives that have an assessment limit are tested on MSA. Objectives without an assessment limit are not tested on MSA.
