In Grade 9, students are exploring the topic correlation vs causation, as they analyze different variables in the real world and determine if one has led to the other.
This has accumulated with a real world problem in which students will research data sets and complete and comparison study using bivariate statistics.
They will model the data using technology, such as Excel, GDC or Desmos. Some of the topics chosen are connected to economics, geography, biology, and business management. Developing these skills in Mathematics will benefit them in their internal assessments for other subjects in the Diploma Programme.
