11 Measurement and data

  • 11 The student applies mathematical process standards to use statistical procedures to describe data.

    • A construct a scatterplot and describe the observed data to address questions of association such as linear, non-linear, and no association between bivariate data;

    • B determine the mean absolute deviation and use this quantity as a measure of the average distance data are from the mean using a data set of no more than 10 data points; and

    • C simulate generating random samples of the same size from a population with known characteristics to develop the notion of a random sample being representative of the population from which it was selected.

12 Personal financial literacy

  • 12 The student applies mathematical process standards to develop an economic way of thinking and problem solving useful in one's life as a knowledgeable consumer and investor.

    • A solve real-world problems comparing how interest rate and loan length affect the cost of credit;

    • B calculate the total cost of repaying a loan, including credit cards and easy access loans, under various rates of interest and over different periods using an online calculator;

    • C explain how small amounts of money invested regularly, including money saved for college and retirement, grow over time;

    • D calculate and compare simple interest and compound interest earnings;

    • E identify and explain the advantages and disadvantages of different payment methods;

    • F analyze situations to determine if they represent financially responsible decisions and identify the benefits of financial responsibility and the costs of financial irresponsibility; and

    • G estimate the cost of a two-year and four-year college education, including family contribution, and devise a periodic savings plan for accumulating the money needed to contribute to the total cost of attendance for at least the first year of college.
