Probability and Statistics

Probability and statistics is an advanced level math course and is greatly beneficial to college preparation. It is a branch of mathematics that deals with analyzing data and determining the likelihood of an event happening. Major topics include sets and Venn diagrams, descriptive statistics and probability. The class will focus on problem solving and using mental-math to solve problems more efficiently. Students will learn to systematically find permutations and combinations of events in order to apply the theories of probability to real-life situations. Many real-life decisions can be expressed in terms of probabilities rather than certainties. This course offers an excellent study of trends and data information and representations.
