Ontario Curriculum

A.1.1: read and interpret graphs (e.g., bar graph, broken-line graph, histogram) obtained from various sources (e.g., newspapers, magazines, Statistics Canada website)

A.1.2: explain the distinction between the terms population and sample, describe the characteristics of a good sample, and explain why sampling is necessary (e.g., time, cost, or physical constraints)

Polling: City

Polling: Neighborhood

A.1.5: make inferences based on the graphical representation of data (e.g., an inference about a sample from the graphical representation of a population), and justify conclusions orally or in writing using convincing arguments (e.g., by showing that it is reasonable to assume that a sample is representative of a population)

Box-and-Whisker Plots

Histograms

Line Plots

Scatter Plots - Activity A

Stem-and-Leaf Plots

A.1.8: gather, interpret, and describe information about applications of data management in the workplace and in everyday life

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)

Probability Simulations

Theoretical and Experimental Probability

A.2.3: perform simple probability experiments (e.g., rolling number cubes, spinning spinners, flipping coins, playing Aboriginal stick-and-stone games), record the results, and determine the experimental probability of an event

Geometric Probability - Activity A

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?")

Probability Simulations

Theoretical and Experimental Probability

A.2.5: determine, through investigation using classgenerated 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")

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
