QuestionCommon Core Standard #CCSS Math Excerpt
17.SP.1...understand that statistics can be used to gain information about a population by examining a sample of the population...
27.SP.6...approximate the probability of a chance event by collecting data on the chance process that produces it and observing its long-run relative frequency, and predict the approximate relative frequency given the probability...
37.SP.7a...develop a uniform probability model by assigning equal probability to all outcomes, and use the model to determine probabilities of events...
47.SP.8c...design and use a simulation to generate frequencies for compound events...
57.SP.7b...develop a probability model (which may not be uniform) by observing frequencies in data generated from a chance process...
