Grade 7 Mathematics Module 5


Grade 7 Module 5: Statistics and Probability

In this module, students begin their study of probability, learning how to interpret probabilities and how to compute probabilities in simple settings.  They also learn how to estimate probabilities empirically.  Probability provides a foundation for the inferential reasoning developed in the second half of this module.  Additionally, students build on their knowledge of data distributions that they studied in Grade 6, compare data distributions of two or more populations, and are introduced to the idea of drawing informal inferences based on data from random samples.

The student materials consist of the student pages for each lesson in Module 5.

The copy ready materials are a collection of the module assessments, lesson exit tickets and fluency exercises from the teacher materials.
