(11)  Measurement and data. The student applies mathematical process standards to use statistical procedures to describe data. The student is expected to:

(A)  construct a scatterplot and describe the observed data to address questions of association such as linear, non-linear, and no association between bivariate data;

(B)  determine the mean absolute deviation and use this quantity as a measure of the average distance data are from the mean using a data set of no more than 10 data points; and

(C)  simulate generating random samples of the same size from a population with known characteristics to develop the notion of a random sample being representative of the population from which it was selected.
