Statistics is offered as a full course in some high schools while other schools focus on statistical topics integrated into courses such as Algebra. In the case of the later, teachers may feel unprepared to teach isolated statistical topics. This curriculum project was developed to provide support for teaching statistics as part of an Algebra II class. The four lessons were designed to provide an understanding of standard deviation, z-scores, and percentiles, which are then to be used in a culminating project based learning assignment. These lessons are aligned to the Common Core Standards for statistical reasoning.
