The student will demonstrate an understanding of the statistical tools needed to describe data (mean, median, mode, range, IQR, MAD, etc.) and correctly compute them for a suitable data set. This outcome will be assessed through homework, exams, quizzes, and/or student projects.

The student will be able to make appropriate visual displays (graphs/charts) for a given data set. This outcome will be assessed through homework, exams, quizzes, and/or student projects.

The student will demonstrate an understanding of basic principles of probability and use them to solve problems. This outcome will be assessed through homework, exams, quizzes, and/or student projects.

The student will demonstrate an understanding of English and Metric measurement systems and will be able to perform conversions (length, area, volume, mass, temperature) within each system. This outcome will be assessed through homework, exams, quizzes, and/or student projects.

The student will demonstrate an understanding of principles and properties of geometric shapes, including analyzing two-dimensional shapes (including computing perimeter and area) and three-dimensional shapes (including computing surface area and volume). This outcome will be assessed through homework, exams, quizzes, and/or student projects.

The student will demonstrate an understanding of techniques of problem-solving in geometry and solve many types of problems. This outcome will be assessed through homework, exams, quizzes, and/or student projects.

The student will demonstrate an understanding of principles and properties of geometry based on triangle congruence and use them to solve problems. This outcome will be assessed through homework, exams, quizzes, and/or student projects.

The student will demonstrate an understanding of principles and properties of geometric transformations and use them to solve problems. This outcome will be assessed through homework, exams, quizzes, and/or student projects.

•Introduction to statistics

•Introduction to probability including simulation, expected value, odds, and conditional probability

•Analyzing geometric shapes, including angles, polygons, and three-dimensional shapes

•Measurement using English and Metric systems including length, area, surface area, and volume

•Geometry using triangle congruence including constructions

•Geometry using transformations

As appropriate, technology (Geometer's Sketchpad, Geogebra, or the like) will be used to enhance student understanding.

Student learning will be evaluated primarily through daily assignments and periodic examinations. Mastery of the learning outcomes may also be evaluated by quizzes and participation in group activities.

The final grade will be computed based on mastery of the learning outcomes as assessed by exams (chapter/midterms and final), homework, classroom participation, and other related activities.
