Abstract

This curriculum project was designed around financially focused real world problems to improve statistical and mathematical literacy skills. It is aligned with New York State Next Generation Algebra II Standards for Statistics and Probability, but it may also be used as instructional material for a statistics class. The current national trend in mathematics requirements for high school graduation is moving from two or three required courses to four. Thus, New York State may follow this trend and require four credits of mathematics for high school graduation. If that fourth course becomes a required statistics class this curriculum will fit nicely within that course. It is the belief of the author that a full course in statistics is the most logical and practical choice in the preparation of our students for college or career. As citizens have access to more and more information, it is imperative that they have a basic understanding of statistics to inform their decision making.
