Data Analysis

  • MAT-01.DPS.D.02 Analyze data by answering descriptive questions. 
  • MAT-02.DPS.D.03 Analyze data and interpret the results to solve one-step comparison problems using information from the graphs. 
  • MAT-03.DPS.D.03 Analyze data and make simple statements to solve one- and two-step problems using information from the graphs. 
  • MAT-04.DPS.D.02 Generate data and create line plots to display a data set of fractions of a unit (1/2, 1/4, 1/8). Solve problems involving addition and subtraction of fractions by using information presented in line plots. 
  • MAT-04.DPS.D.03 Utilize graphs and diagrams to represent and solve word problems using the four operations involving whole numbers, benchmark fractions, and decimals. 
  • MAT-05.DPS.D.01 Generate data and create line plots to display a data set of fractions of a unit (1/2, 1/4, 1/8). Use grade-level operations for fractions to solve problems involving information presented in line plots. 
  • MAT-05.DPS.D.02 Utilize graphs and diagrams to represent, analyze, and solve authentic problems using information presented in one or more tables or line plots, including whole numbers, fractions, and decimals. 
  • MAT-06.DPS.DA.02 Calculate measures of center (median and mean) and variability (range and mean absolute deviation) to answer a statistical question. Identify mode(s) if they exist. 
  • MAT-06.DPS.DA.03 Identify outliers by observation and describe their effect on measures of center and variability. Justify which measures would be appropriate to answer a statistical question. 
  • MAT-06.DPS.DA.04 Display numerical data in plots on a number line, including dot plots and histograms. Describe any overall patterns in data, such as gaps, clusters, and skews. 
  • MAT-07.DPS.DA.02 Analyze and draw inferences about a population using single and multiple random samples by using given measures of center and variability for the numerical data set. 
  • MAT-08.DPS.DA.01 Interpret scatter plots for bivariate measurement data to investigate patterns such as clustering, outliers, positive or negative association, linear association, and nonlinear association. 
  • MAT-08.DPS.DA.02 Draw a trend line on a given scatter plot with a linear association and justify its fit by describing the closeness of the data points to the line. 
  • MAT-08.DPS.DA.03 Solve authentic problems in the context of bivariate measurement data by interpreting the slope and intercept(s) and making predictions using a linear model. 
  • MAT-08.DPS.DA.04 Construct and interpret a two-way table summarizing bivariate categorical data collected from the same subjects. 
  • MAT-10.DPS.02 Compare the center (median, mean) and spread (interquartile range, standard deviation) of two or more different data sets using statistics appropriate to the shape of the data distribution. 
  • MAT-10.DPS.03 Represent data on two quantitative variables on a scatter plot and describe how the variables are related. 
  • MAT-10.DPS.04 Distinguish between correlation and causation. 
  • MAT-10.DPS.10 Construct and interpret two-way frequency tables of data for two categorical variables. Use the two-way table as a sample space to decide if events are independent and approximate conditional probabilities. 
  • MAT-12.DPS.01 Interpret differences in shape, center, and spread in the context of the data sets, accounting for possible effects of extreme data points (outliers). 
  • MAT-12.DPS.02 Use the mean and standard deviation of a data set to fit it to a normal distribution and estimate population percentages. Recognize that there are data sets for which such a procedure is not appropriate. 
  • MAT-12.DPS.03 Evaluate reports based on data. 
  • MAT-12.DPS.04 Represent data on a scatter plot for two quantitative variables and describe how the variables are related. 
  • MAT-12.DPS.05 Informally assess the fit of a function by plotting and analyzing residuals. 
  • MAT-12.DPS.06 Use data from a sample survey to estimate a population means or proportion; develop a margin of error through the use of simulation models for random sampling. 
  • MAT-12.DPS.07 Understand the process of making inferences about population parameters based on a random sample from that population. 
  • MAT-12.DPS.08 Decide if a specified model is consistent with results from a given data-generating process (e.g., using simulation).
