MDM.D.1.1: recognize that the analysis of one-variable data involves the frequencies associated with one attribute, and determine, using technology, the relevant numerical summaries (i.e., mean, median, mode, range, interquartile range, variance, and standard deviation)

Box-and-Whisker Plots

Describing Data Using Statistics

Line Plots

MDM.D.2: analyse, interpret, and draw conclusions from two-variable data using numerical, graphical, and algebraic summaries;

MDM.D.2.2: determine the positions of individual data points within a one-variable data set using quartiles, percentiles, and z-scores, use the normal distribution to model suitable onevariable data sets, and recognize these processes as strategies for one-variable data analysis

Box-and-Whisker Plots

Correlation

Solving Using Trend Lines

MDM.D.1.3: generate, using technology, the relevant graphical summaries of one-variable data (e.g., circle graphs, bar graphs, histograms, stem-and-leaf plots, boxplots) based on the type of data provided (e.g., categorical, ordinal, quantitative)

Box-and-Whisker Plots

Histograms

Stem-and-Leaf Plots

MDM.D.1.5: interpret statistical summaries (e.g., graphical, numerical) to describe the characteristics of a one-variable data set and to compare two related one-variable data sets (e.g., compare the lengths of different species of trout; compare annual incomes in Canada and in a third-world country; compare Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal incomes); describe how statistical summaries (e.g., graphs, measures of central tendency) can be used to misrepresent one-variable data; and make inferences, and make and justify conclusions, from statistical summaries of one-variable data orally and in writing, using convincing arguments

Box-and-Whisker Plots

Correlation

MDM.D.2.1: recognize that the analysis of two-variable data involves the relationship between two attributes, recognize the correlation coefficient as a measure of the fit of the data to a linear model, and determine, using technology, the relevant numerical summaries (e.g., summary tables such as contingency tables; correlation coefficients)

Solving Using Trend Lines

Using Tables, Rules and Graphs

MDM.D.2.3: generate, using technology, the relevant graphical summaries of two-variable data (e.g., scatter plots, side-by-side boxplots) based on the type of data provided (e.g., categorical, ordinal, quantitative)

Box-and-Whisker Plots

Scatter Plots - Activity A

MDM.D.3: demonstrate an understanding of the applications of data management used by the media and the advertising industry and in various occupations.

MDM.D.3.1: interpret statistics presented in the media (e.g., the UN's finding that 2% of the world's population has more than half the world's wealth, whereas half the world's population has only 1% of the world's wealth), and explain how the media, the advertising industry, and others (e.g., marketers, pollsters) use and misuse statistics (e.g., as represented in graphs) to promote a certain point of view (e.g., by making a general statement based on a weak correlation or an assumed cause-and-effect relationship; by starting the vertical scale at a value other than zero; by making statements using general population statistics without reference to data specific to minority groups)

MDM.D.3.2: assess the validity of conclusions presented in the media by examining sources of data, including Internet sources (i.e., to determine whether they are authoritative, reliable, unbiased, and current), methods of data collection, and possible sources of bias (e.g., sampling bias, non-response bias, cultural bias in a survey question), and by questioning the analysis of the data (e.g., whether there is any indication of the sample size in the analysis) and conclusions drawn from the data (e.g., whether any assumptions are made about cause and effect)

MDM.E.1: design and carry out a culminating investigation that requires the integration and application of the knowledge and skills related to the expectations of this course;

MDM.E.1.1: pose a significant problem of interest that requires the organization and analysis of a suitable set of primary or secondary quantitative data (e.g., primary data collected from a student-designed game of chance, secondary data from a reliable source such as E-STAT), and conduct appropriate background research related to the topic being studied

MDM.E.1.2: design a plan to study the problem (e.g., identify the variables and the population; develop an ethical survey; establish the procedures for gathering, summarizing, and analysing the primary or secondary data; consider the sample size and possible sources of bias)
