**At Grade**Created by: CK-12

- 1.
## An Introduction to Independent Events - Basic

This chapter introduces students to the concept of mathematical probability through independent, dependent, mutually inclusive and mutually exclusive events.

- 2.
## An Introduction to Conditional Probability - Basic

This chapter expands a student's understanding of probability by introducing conditions to events.

- 3.
## Discrete Random Variables - Basic

This chapter introduces the student to discrete random variables and a basic theoretical probability formula. Also covered are Tree Diagrams and basic methods for using a calculator to determine actual probabilities.

- 4.
## Standard Distributions - Basic

This chapter allows students to better visualize the concepts surrounding probability through distribution graphs.

- 5.
## The Shape, Center and Spread of a Normal Distribution - Basic

This chapter furthers a students understanding of distribution by introducing the normal distribution curve, continuing to explore the bell-curve, and covering the use of a calculator in finding the standard deviation.

- 6.
## Measures of Central Tendency - Basic

This chapter introduces the student to data categorization through frequency tables and measures of central tendency; specifically the mean, median, and mode.

- 7.
## Organizing and Displaying Data - Basic

This chapter expands a student's ability to manage data through the introduction of more diverse and complex graphs.
