Describing Data Using Statistics

Estimating Population Size

A.2.1: determine the theoretical probability of an event (i.e., the ratio of the number of favourable outcomes to the total number of possible outcomes, where all outcomes are equally likely), and represent the probability in a variety of ways (e.g., as a fraction, as a percent, as a decimal in the range 0 to 1)

Binomial Probabilities

Geometric Probability

Independent and Dependent Events

Probability Simulations

Theoretical and Experimental Probability

A.2.2: identify examples of the use of probability in the media (e.g., the probability of rain, of winning a lottery, of wait times for a service exceeding specified amounts) and various ways in which probability is represented (e.g., as a fraction, as a percent, as a decimal in the range 0 to 1)

Estimating Population Size

Independent and Dependent Events

Probability Simulations

Theoretical and Experimental Probability

A.2.4: compare, through investigation, the theoretical probability of an event with the experimental probability, and describe how uncertainty explains why they might differ (e.g., “I know that the theoretical probability of getting tails is 0.5, but that does not mean that I will always obtain 3 tails when I toss the coin 6 times”; “If a lottery has a 1 in 9 chance of winning, am I certain to win if I buy 9 tickets?”)

Geometric Probability

Independent and Dependent Events

Probability Simulations

Theoretical and Experimental Probability

A.2.5: determine, through investigation using class-generated data and technology-based simulation models (e.g., using a random-number generator on a spreadsheet or on a graphing calculator), the tendency of experimental probability to approach theoretical probability as the number of trials in an experiment increases (e.g., “If I simulate tossing a coin 1000 times using technology, the experimental probability that I calculate for getting tails in any one toss is likely to be closer to the theoretical probability than if I simulate tossing the coin only 10 times”)

B.3.7: gather, interpret, and describe information about applications of the mathematics of personal finance in the workplace (e.g., selling real estate, bookkeeping, managing a restaurant)

C.2.2: apply the concept of perimeter in familiar contexts (e.g., baseboard, fencing, door and window trim)

Perimeter and Area of Rectangles

C.2.4: solve problems involving the areas of rectangles, triangles, and circles, and of related composite shapes, in situations arising from real-world applications

Area of Parallelograms

Perimeter and Area of Rectangles

C.2.5: solve problems involving the volumes and surface areas of rectangular prisms, triangular prisms, and cylinders, and of related composite figures, in situations arising from real-world applications

Prisms and Cylinders

Surface and Lateral Areas of Prisms and Cylinders

C.3.1: identify and describe applications of ratio and rate, and recognize and represent equivalent ratios (e.g., show that 4:6 represents the same ratio as 2:3 by showing that a ramp with a height of 4 m and a base of 6 m and a ramp with a height of 2 m and a base of 3 m are equally steep) and equivalent rates (e.g., recognize that paying $1.25 for 250 mL of tomato sauce is equivalent to paying $3.75 for 750 mL of the same sauce), using a variety of tools (e.g., concrete materials, diagrams, dynamic geometry software)

Part-to-part and Part-to-whole Ratios

C.3.2: identify situations in which it is useful to make comparisons using unit rates, and solve problems that involve comparisons of unit rates

C.3.3: identify and describe real-world applications of proportional reasoning (e.g., mixing concrete; calculating dosages; converting units; painting walls; calculating fuel consumption; calculating pay; enlarging patterns), distinguish between a situation involving a proportional relationship (e.g., recipes, where doubling the quantity of each ingredient doubles the number of servings; long-distance phone calls billed at a fixed cost per minute, where talking for half as many minutes costs half as much) and a situation involving a non-proportional relationship (e.g., cellular phone packages, where doubling the minutes purchased does not double the cost of the package; food purchases, where it can be less expensive to buy the same quantity of a product in one large package than in two or more small packages; hydro bills, where doubling consumption does not double the cost) in a personal and/or workplace context, and explain their reasoning
