Math Course for Grades 11, 12
Probability and Statistics at Ignite Christian Academy trains students in an overview of basic concepts of statistics with an emphasis on descriptive statistics.
In Ignite Christian Academy’s math courses, students strengthen critical thinking skills and learn to apply mathematical concepts to real-life situations to come up with practical solutions. Math allows students to see and discover the order of the natural world, through logic, patterns, and processes. Math gives students insight into the rational, consistent nature of God. Examination of various mathematical concepts contributes to a deeper understanding of God’s creative and ordered design and the responsibility to use the ability to reason, problem solve and make choices based on our understanding of content to serve and glorify God. This high-school course provides an alternative math credit for students who may not wish to pursue more advanced mathematics courses such as Algebra II and Pre-Calculus. It begins with an in-depth study of probability, with a focus on conceptual understanding. Students then move into an exploration of sampling and comparing populations. The first semester closes with units on data distributions and data analysis—including how to summarize data sets with a variety of statistics. In the second half of the course, students create and analyze scatterplots and begin a basic study of regression. Then they study two-way tables and normal distributions, learning about powerful applications such as hypothesis testing. Finally, students return to probability at a more advanced level, focusing on topics such as conditional probability, combinations and permutations, and sets
Algebra II is a prerequisite course.
A graphing calculator is required for this course.
