#### Statistics & Probability

##### Use random sampling to draw inferences about a population.

A probability near 0 indicates an unlikely event, a probability around 1/2 indicates an event that is neither unlikely nor likely, and a probability near 1 indicates a likely event.

###### Approximate the probability of a chance event by collecting data on the chance process that produces it and observing its long-run relative frequency, and predict the approximate relative frequency given the probability.

###### Develop a probability model and use it to find probabilities of events. Compare probabilities from a model to observed frequencies; if the agreement is not good, explain possible sources of the discrepancy.

###### Find probabilities of compound events using organized lists, tables, tree diagrams, and simulation.

Represent sample spaces for compound events using methods such as organized lists, tables and tree diagrams.

#### Interpreting Functions

##### Understand the concept of a function and use function notation.

###### Understand that a function from one set (called the domain) to another set (called the range) assigns to each element of the domain exactly one element of the range. If f is a function and x is an element of its domain, then f(x) denotes the output of f corresponding to the input x. The graph of f is the graph of the equation y = f(x).

###### Use function notation, evaluate functions for inputs in their domains, and interpret statements that use function notation in terms of a context.

###### Recognize that sequences are functions, sometimes defined recursively, whose domain is a subset of the integers.

##### Interpret functions that arise in applications in terms of the context.

###### For a function that models a relationship between two quantities, interpret key features of graphs and tables in terms of the quantities, and sketch graphs showing key features given a verbal description of the relationship. Key features include: intercepts; intervals where the function is increasing, decreasing, positive, or negative; relative maximums and minimums; symmetries; end behavior; and periodicity.

###### Relate the domain of a function to its graph and, where applicable, to the quantitative relationship it describes.

###### Calculate and interpret the average rate of change of a function (presented symbolically or as a table) over a specified interval. Estimate the rate of change from a graph.

##### Analyze functions using different representations.
