The Common Core State Standards: Where Do Probability and Statistics Fit In?

Abstract

"The Content Standards for elementary grades (K-6) detail the conceptual and procedural knowledge students should develop in mathematics. The K-5 standards include a measurement and data strand, for which some of the standards are directly connected to probability and statistics. The sixth-grade standards include a statistics and probability strand, for which all the standards are relevant to probability and statistics content. Identifying the content standards that include content in data and chance; the opportunities to incorporate the mathematical practices in those standards; and rich, meaningful tasks to expose the content and practices is an important facet of transitioning to CCSSM-compatible practice. Here, we identify the elementary content standards relevant to probability and statistics, and, for selected standards, suggest tasks and classroom practices to facilitate incorporation of the mathematical practices."
