Education Technology
Students describe the results of two- and three-step chance experiments, with and without replacements, assign probabilities to outcomes and determine probabilities of events. They use language of ‘if ....then, ‘given’, ‘of’, ‘knowing that’ to investigate conditional statements. Students determine quartiles and interquartile range; construct and interpret box plots and use them to compare data sets including corresponding histograms and dot plots.

Activity: Award Winning Data

Arguably the most famous awards in the world, but are the Academy Awards® ageist and sexist? The mean age of female winners is 36 compared with males at 44, but Jessica Tandy (Driving Miss Daisy) won an award at age 81, the oldest award recipient. Katherine Hepburn won an award at age 74. What can the rest of the data tell us about the distribution of ages for both males and females. Students explore different representations of the data and interpret these to answer the big question, are the awards ageist and sexist?
