Statistics Quantitative Data How does bivariate data differ from univariate data? How can we display data with two different variables? Should we connect the data points in a scatter plot? How does having accurate and appropriate scales help us understand the bivariate data? What types of words can we use to describe how data is plotted on a scatter plot? What does a clustering of data points indicate? Can we determine from the scatter plot if we have a positive, negative or no association? What is an outlier? How does an outlier affect the data? How would the points look if there was a strong association? Weaker association? How can we describe a pattern of data? How can we draw a trend line to best represent the data? Will the trend always be linear? Can we use the trend line to make predictions? How can we make predictions for data that is well outside the scope of the scatter plot? Which two points should we use to develop our line of best fit? Will everyones equations of the line of best always be the same?
Qualitative Data How can we use a table to demonstrate associations between categorical data? Does it matter which variables are rows or column? What does each cell represent? How can we determine marginal frequencies? Can we determine percents of joint frequencies out of total? Can we determine percents of marginal frequencies out of total? What would you need to do to find percents of single categories? What does relative mean? What are relative joint and marginal frequencies?
Applied Geometry How can we use our knowledge of Pythagorean Theorem to prove given lengths are those of a right triangle? How can we apply Pythagorean Theorem to find measures of real life situations in two dimensions? How can we use Pythagorean Theorem for direct measurement in our three dimensional world?
Solids What is a solid? How do solids differ from other figures you have learned? How can we classify solids? How do we name solids? How can we determine the amount of space within a solid? What unit of measure would we use? Why can't we measure using squares like we did with area? What is the general concept of volume? Can we create a general formula for volume of solids? Are their solids the general formula does not apply to? How do pyramids and cones volumes compare to prisms and cylinders of same bases? How can we determine the formula of a sphere? Hemisphere? How can we determine the volume of composite figures? Is it important to state the units you measured volume in? What does stating cubic units show you understand? How does surface area differ from volume? Can you draw the nets of a cone and a cylinder? Can you devleop a formula to cover the total surface area of the solid? What units do we use to measure surface area? If two figures are similar, how does the scale factor afffect the dimensions of the figure? What is the relationship between two figures dimensions, area and volume, in reference to its scale factor? Can we just use the scale factor, to determine a similar figures area and volume? If given area or volume of similar figures, can we determine a missing dimesion?
Number System How can we determine the sets of real numbers a numerical value belongs to? Can we classify a number as rational and irrational? How can we approximate the value of irrational numbers written as square roots? How can we determine which two consecutive integers an irrational number lies between? How will you determine if it is shy or past the halfway mark between two integers? Can we place all real number sets on a number line? Are their any sets that cannot be displayed on a real number line? How many numbers lie between integers on a number line? When solving equations with square and cubed roots, how can you determine if your results will be rational or irrational? 

Statistics Quantitative Data Construct scatter plots from given data points List data from scatter plot Determine if data displayed has a positive, negative or no association Determine if data is clustered or not Determine if there is an outlier Draw a trend line through data  appears linear Draw a trend line though curved data Determine the slope of trend line Determine the yintercept of the trend line using y = mx + b Write the equation of the line of best fit (trend line) Use the line of best fit to make predictions(interpolate, extrapolate)
