Probability and Statistics Resources for Algebra I and Algebra II EOC Eddie Keel Southwest CORE Math Coordinator ekeel@battelleforkids.org News • There will be summer training offered by the Tennessee Department of Education for 9-12 math teachers. More details coming. • Tennessee teachers are supposed to use Common Core Standards for Algebra I, Algebra II, and Geometry during 2013-2014. • 2013-2014 is the last year for our current EOC exams. More News • The PARCC Assessment will be used in 20142015. Sample items have been released. Check the TN Core site for more info. • The state has hired 8 regional math coordinators for each of the 8 CORE centers. More News • Some SPIs in grades 3-8 math have been dropped this year in preparation for implementation of Common Core. • Algebra II will have an annual measurable objective (AMO) this year. • Remember that Algebra II TVAAS scores for your school is counted in your schools Numeracy and Overall TVAAS score.

Fruit Loops vs. Cheerios • This activity was adapted from an activity posted on Regents Exam Prep Center web site: – http://www.regentsprep.org/Regents/math/ALGE BRA/AD3/FruitLoopsActivity.pdf Algebra I—Standard 5 • SPI 3102.5.1 Interpret displays of data to answer questions about the data set(s) (e.g., identify pattern, trends, and/or outliers in a data set). • SPI 3102.5.2 Identify the effect on mean, median, mode, and range when values in the data set are changed. • SPI 3102.5.3 Using a scatter-plot, determine if a linear relationship exists and describe the association between variables. • SPI 3102.5.4 Generate the equation of a line that fits linear data and use it to make a prediction. • SPI 3102.5.5 Determine theoretical and/or experimental probability of an event and/or its complement including using relative frequency. Algebra I Cram Course • I created this materials for use at Haywood High School in reviewing our students for the Algebra I EOC. • Hard copies of these materials can be found at the following URL: – http://tennesseealg1eoc.wordpress.com/ Algebra II-Standard 5 • SPI 3103.5.1 Compute, compare and explain summary statistics for distributions of data including measures of center and spread. • SPI 3103.5.2 Compare data sets using graphs and summary statistics. • SPI 3103.5.3 Analyze patterns in a scatter-plot and describe relationships in both linear and non-linear data. • SPI 3103.5.4 Apply the characteristics of the normal distribution. • SPI 3103.5.5 Determine differences between randomized experiments and observational studies. • SPI 3103.5.6 Find the regression curve that best fits both linear and nonlinear data (using technology such as a graphing calculator) and use it to make predictions. • SPI 3103.5.7 Determine/recognize when the correlation coefficient measures goodness of fit. • SPI 3103.5.8 Apply probability concepts such as conditional probability and independent events to calculate simple probability.
