Statistics is a branch of mathematics that deals with collection, analysis, interpretation and presentation of numerical data. Listed below are math games and videos of statistics lessons to learn about statistics, data tabulation, graphs and charts, making predictions and more.

Bar Graphs - Math LessonGrade: 2 - 6 In this lesson, learn that a bar graph is a visual way to display and compare numerical data. 1:20 |

Histograms - Math LessonGrade: 2 - 6 In this lesson, learn that a histogram is a type of bar graph that shows the frequency of data in various intervals. 1:35 |

Pictographs and Line Plots - Math LessonGrade: 2 - 6 In this lesson, learn that a line plot is a graph that shows the shape of a data set by using x's above each value on a number line. Students also learn that a pictograph is a graph that shows data using picture symbols. 2:55 |

Line Graphs - Math LessonGrade: 2 - 6 In this lesson, learn that a line graph is used to show change over time, and the points on a line graph are plotted like the points on a coordinate grid. A double line graph displays two sets of data on the same graph. 1:50 |

Statistics: Decisions Through Data: What Is Statistics?Grade: 5 - 12 Learn what statistics is. The lesson unravels the statistical arguments behind surveys, polls, experiments, and product claims. 12:25 |

Statistics: The AverageGrade: 5 - 12 Introduction to descriptive statistics and central tendency. Ways to measure the average of a set: median, mean, mode. 12:35 |

Statistics: Sample vs. Population MeanGrade: 5 - 12 The difference between the mean of a sample and the mean of a population. 6:40 |

Statistics: Variance of a PopulationGrade: 5 - 12 Variance of a population. 12:25 |

Statistics: Sample VarianceGrade: 5 - 12 Using the variance of a sample to estimate the variance of a population. 11:20 |

Statistics: Standard DeviationGrade: 5 - 12 Review of what we've learned. Introduction to the standard deviation. 13:05 |

Introduction to Random VariablesGrade: 8 - 12 Introduction to random variables and probability distribution functions. 12:05 |

Probability Density Functions - Math LessonGrade: 8 - 12 The video lesson explains probability density functions for continuous random variables. 10:00 |

Binomial Distribution, 1Grade: 8 - 12 Introduction to the binomial distribution. 12:15 |

Binomial Distribution, 2Grade: 8 - 12 More on the binomial distribution. 13:25 |

Binomial Distribution, 3Grade: 8 - 12 An example of binomial distribution using basketball. 13:25 |

Binomial Distribution, 4Grade: 8 - 12 The lesson uses Excel to visualize the basketball example of binomial distribution. 10:45 |

Expected Value: E(X)Grade: 8 - 12 Expected value of a random variable. 14:55 |

Poisson Process, part 1Grade: 8 - 12 Introduction to Poisson Processes and the Poisson Distribution. 11:00 |

Poisson Process, part 2Grade: 8 - 12 More of the derivation of the Poisson Distribution. 12:40 |

Law of Large NumbersGrade: 8 - 12 Introduction to the law of large numbers. 9:00 |

Introduction to the Normal DistributionGrade: 8 - 12 Exploring the normal distribution. 2:25 |

Scatter Plots and Trends - Math LessonGrade: 8 - 12 In this lesson, learn that a scatter plot is a graph in which the data is plotted as points on a coordinate grid. A 'best-fit line' can be drawn to determine the trend in the data. 2:45 |
