Trigonometry and Discrete Math
Final Exam Topics 2015
Unit 3: Statistics
Chapter 3- Probability, Data Analysis, and Statistics
3.1 Sampling Methods- Convenience, Stratified, and Random
What makes something Bias?
Survey Project
Measures of Central Tendency (Mean, Median, Mode, Range)
3.2 Frequency Tables and Histograms
3.3 Scatter Plots
Correlation: Positive/Negative/None
Strength: Strong/Moderate/Weak
Line of Best Fit
3.4 Box and Whisker Plots
Finding the IQR (inner quartile range), upper quartile, lower quartile, and the median
Which measures of central tendency does a box plot not reveal? Mean and mode
3.5 Variance and Standard Deviation
Use the mean to figure out each data point’s “distance from the mean”
Smaller standard deviation means the data points were more consistent and closer to the mean
3.6 Probability (“And” vs. “Or”)
Compound probability- two separate events multiplied together
Conditional Probability- P (A|B) = P (A and B together) / P(B)
Experimental Probability- ex: probability of something coming out defective, based off a previous trial
3.7 Permutations (when order matters)
Combinations (when order does not matter)
Unit 4: Discrete Math
Chapter 4- Graph Theory and Voting Theory
4.1 Graph Theory
Euler Paths and Circuits (must go over every edge once and only once)
Hamilton Paths and Circuits (must hit every vertex once and only once)
Circuits= end where you started
