Algebra II Module 4

Students studying

Inferences and Conclusions from Data

Students build a formal understanding of probability, considering complex events such as unions, intersections, and complements as well as the concept of independence and conditional probability.  The idea of using a smooth curve to model a data distribution is introduced along with using tables and techonolgy to find areas under a normal curve.  Students make inferences and justify conclusions from sample surveys, experiments, and observational studies.  Data is used from random samples to estimate a population mean or proportion.  Students calculate margin of error and interpret it in context.  Given data from a statistical experiment, students use simulation to create a randomization distribution and use it to determine if there is a significant difference between two treatments.

The student materials consist of the student pages for each lesson in Module 4.   

The copy ready materials are a collection of the module assessments, lesson exit tickets and fluency exercises from the teacher materials.
