# Statistics

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. Math Videos & Lessons:  (Reviewed by K-12 teachers) Bar Graphs - Math LessonGrade: 2 - 6In this lesson, learn that a bar graph is a visual way to display and compare numerical data.1:20 Histograms - Math LessonGrade: 2 - 6In 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 - 6In 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 - 6In 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 - 12Learn what statistics is. The lesson unravels the statistical arguments behind surveys, polls, experiments, and product claims.12:25 Statistics: The AverageGrade: 5 - 12Introduction 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 - 12The difference between the mean of a sample and the mean of a population.6:40 Statistics: Variance of a PopulationGrade: 5 - 12Variance of a population.12:25 Statistics: Sample VarianceGrade: 5 - 12Using the variance of a sample to estimate the variance of a population.11:20 Statistics: Standard DeviationGrade: 5 - 12Review of what we've learned. Introduction to the standard deviation.13:05 Introduction to Random VariablesGrade: 8 - 12Introduction to random variables and probability distribution functions.12:05 Probability Density Functions - Math LessonGrade: 8 - 12The video lesson explains probability density functions for continuous random variables.10:00 Binomial Distribution, 1Grade: 8 - 12Introduction to the binomial distribution.12:15 Binomial Distribution, 2Grade: 8 - 12More on the binomial distribution.13:25 Binomial Distribution, 3Grade: 8 - 12An example of binomial distribution using basketball.13:25 Binomial Distribution, 4Grade: 8 - 12The lesson uses Excel to visualize the basketball example of binomial distribution.10:45 Expected Value: E(X)Grade: 8 - 12Expected value of a random variable.14:55 Poisson Process, part 1Grade: 8 - 12Introduction to Poisson Processes and the Poisson Distribution.11:00 Poisson Process, part 2Grade: 8 - 12More of the derivation of the Poisson Distribution.12:40 Law of Large NumbersGrade: 8 - 12Introduction to the law of large numbers.9:00 Introduction to the Normal DistributionGrade: 8 - 12Exploring the normal distribution.2:25 Scatter Plots and Trends - Math LessonGrade: 8 - 12In 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
