Unit 1 Descriptive Statistics
• Represent data with plots on the real number line (dot plots and histograms).
• Use statistics appropriate to the shape of the data distribution to compare center (median, mean) and spread (interquartile range, standard deviation) of two or more different data sets.
• Interpret differences in shape, center, and spread in the context of the data sets, accounting for possible effects of extreme data points (outliers)
• Create equations and inequalities in one variable and use them to solve problems.
Unit 2 Exponents/Scientific Notation
• Explain how the definition of rational exponents follows from extending the properties of integer exponents to those values, allowing for a notation for radicals in terms of rational exponents.
• Create equations and inequalities in one variable and use them to solve problems, including equations arising from linear and quadratic functions, and simple rational and exponential functions.
• Represent and analyze mathematical situations and structures using algebraic symbols.
• Monitor and reflect on the process of mathematical problem solving.
