## Description

### Class Experience

Grade 12 students in the Probability and Statistics introductory course will learn fundamental concepts in probability theory and statistical analysis. Specifically, they will cover: Descriptive statistics: Students will learn how to summarize and visualize data using measures of central tendency (mean, median, mode) and measures of variability (range, variance, standard deviation). They will also learn about graphical representations of data, such as histograms, bar graphs, and scatter plots. Probability theory: Students will learn about the basic concepts of probability theory, including events, sample spaces, and probability rules. They will learn how to calculate probabilities of simple events, compound events, and conditional events. Discrete probability distributions: Students will study discrete probability distributions, such as the binomial and Poisson distributions. They will learn how to calculate probabilities and expected values for these distributions. Continuous probability distributions: Students will study continuous probability distributions, such as the normal distribution. They will learn how to calculate probabilities and expected values for these distributions. Sampling and estimation: Students will learn about sampling methods and how to use them to estimate population parameters. They will also learn about confidence intervals and how to interpret them. Hypothesis testing: Students will learn about hypothesis testing and how to use it to make inferences about population parameters. They will also learn about Type I and Type II errors. Linear regression: Students will study simple linear regression and how to use it to model the relationship between two variables. They will learn about least-squares estimation, coefficient of determination, and significance tests for the regression parameters. Throughout the course, students will use statistical software packages, such as R or Excel, to analyze data and solve problems. By the end of the course, students will have a solid foundation in probability and statistical theory and be able to apply these concepts to real-world situations.

I run a Mathematics and Physics Tutoring company for the last 6 years, and I have gotten a lot of requests from students and parents for numerous types of Probability and Statistics courses. So I am very well versed in the subject manner and I have gotten a lot of positive feed back from parents/students in terms of Teaching and results.

he specific homework assigned will vary from week to week, but generally, learners in the Probability and Statistics course can expect to have problem sets and readings assigned on a regular basis. The problem sets will typically involve applying the concepts covered in class to new scenarios and may involve calculations and data analysis. In addition to problem sets, learners may also be assigned projects to complete, either individually or in groups. These projects will give students an opportunity to apply their knowledge and skills to real-world problems and will require them to work independently, conduct research, and present their findings to the class. The amount of time that learners should expect to spend on homework each week will depend on the specific assignments, but as a general rule, learners should plan to spend approximately 1-2 hours outside of class time for every hour spent in class. This means that for a 3-hour course, students should expect to spend 3-6 hours per week on homework and readings. Regarding required readings, learners should expect to read several chapters from the textbook each week, with the amount varying based on the difficulty of the material covered. The specific page count will depend on the textbook used in the course, but learners can expect to read anywhere from 20-50 pages per week on average. The instructor will provide guidance on which sections of the textbook to read and which parts to focus on. Regenerate response

To complete this introductory course on Probability and Statistics, learners may need the following materials: A computer with internet access to access online resources, complete homework assignments, and communicate with the instructor and other learners Access to statistical software such as R, SAS, or SPSS (the instructor will provide guidance on which software to use and how to access it) Textbooks or online resources assigned by the instructor (see previous answer for potential sources) Writing materials, including pens, pencils, and paper, for taking notes and completing assignments A calculator, preferably a scientific or graphing calculator, to assist with calculations A ruler or other measuring tool for drawing graphs and interpreting data Any other materials required for specific projects or assignments, which will be communicated by the instructor in advance. The instructor will provide a list of required materials at the beginning of the course, including any textbooks or software that need to be purchased or accessed.

in the Probability and Statistics course, learner progress will be assessed through a combination of methods, including homework assignments, quizzes, exams, and projects. The grading scale and specific assessment criteria will be provided by the instructor at the beginning of the course. Homework assignments and projects will typically be graded on a pass/fail or percentage scale, with feedback provided to help students improve their work. Quizzes and exams may include multiple choice, short answer, or problem-solving questions, and will be used to evaluate student understanding of the course material. Overall, the course grade will be based on the student's performance across all of these assessments, with consideration given to attendance and participation in class discussions and activities. The specific grading breakdown will be provided by the instructor at the beginning of the course. In addition to formal assessments, the instructor may also use informal assessments, such as class discussions, to gauge student understanding of the material and adjust their teaching approach as needed.

2 hours per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.

The Probability and Statistics course for grade 12 students may use a variety of books, articles, websites, and other sources as part of the curriculum. Here are some examples: "Statistics: The Art and Science of Learning from Data" by Alan Agresti and Christine A. Franklin "Introduction to Probability" by Joseph K. Blitzstein and Jessica Hwang "An Introduction to Statistical Learning: with Applications in R" by Gareth James, Daniela Witten, Trevor Hastie, and Robert Tibshirani "Statistical Inference" by George Casella and Roger L. Berger "Introduction to Probability and Statistics Using R" by G. Jay Kerns Khan Academy's Probability and Statistics courses Stat Trek (stattrek.com), a website with free online tutorials and resources on probability and statistics Journal articles and case studies from academic publications in statistics and data analysis, such as the Journal of the American Statistical Association, Statistics in Medicine, and the Journal of Statistical Planning and Inference. The specific sources used in the course will depend on the instructor's preferences and the course objectives. The instructor will provide guidance on which sources to use and how to access them.
