# Proportionality - Using Probability And Statistics

Check out Math Explorations, a series of middle school math textbooks aligned to the TEKS!

(6)  Proportionality. The student applies mathematical process standards to use probability and statistics to describe or solve problems involving proportional relationships. The student is expected to:

(A)  represent sample spaces for simple and compound events using lists and tree diagrams;

(B)  select and use different simulations to represent simple and compound events with and without technology;

(C)  make predictions and determine solutions using experimental data for simple and compound events;

(D)  make predictions and determine solutions using theoretical probability for simple and compound events;

(E)  find the probabilities of a simple event and its complement and describe the relationship between the two;

(F)  use data from a random sample to make inferences about a population;

(G)  solve problems using data represented in bar graphs, dot plots, and circle graphs, including part-to-whole and part-to-part comparisons and equivalents;

(H)  solve problems using qualitative and quantitative predictions and comparisons from simple experiments; and

(I)  determine experimental and theoretical probabilities related to simple and compound events using data and sample spaces.
