  16. Study Edge Statistics

    • Subject: Math

    In Statistics, students build on the mathematics knowledge and skills from Kindergarten–grade 8 and Algebra I, broadening their knowledge of variability and statistical processes. Students will study sampling and experimentation, categorical and quantitative data, probability and random variables, inference, and bivariate data. Students will connect data and statistical processes to real-world situations and extend their knowledge of data analysis (TAC §111.47(b)(3)).

    This video book is brought to you by TEA and Study Edge. It may be used to teach an entire Statistics course or to supplement traditional Statistics textbooks.

  17. Study Edge Precalculus

    • Subject: Math

    Precalculus is the preparation for calculus. The course approaches is designed to strengthen and enhance conceptual understanding and mathematical reasoning used when modeling and solving mathematical and real-world problems. Students systematically work with functions and their multiple representations. Precalculus can deepen students' mathematical understanding and fluency with algebra and trigonometry and extends their ability to make connections and apply concepts and procedures at higher levels. Students will investigate and explore mathematical ideas, develop multiple strategies for analyzing complex situations, and use technology to build understanding, make connections between representations, and provide support in solving problems (TAC §111.42(b)(3)).

    This video book is brought to you by TEA and Study Edge. It may be used to teach an entire Precalculus course or to supplement traditional Precalculus textbooks.
