Statistics & Probability

7.SP.1
Counting
• Listing outcomes of experiments in a systematic way. 

7.SP.2
Concepts of probability
• The probability of an event occurring: student progress from informal to formal descriptions of probability.
• Predicting and determining probabilities.
• Difference between experimental and theoretical probability. 

7.SP.3
Outcomes of simple random processes
• Finding the probability of equally likely outcomes. 
7.SP.4
Statistical reasoning with an aim to becoming a statistically aware consumer
• The use of statistics to gather information from a selection of the population with the intention of making generalisations about the whole population. They consider situations where statistics are misused and learn to evaluate the reliability and quality of data and data sources. 

7.SP.5
Finding, collecting and organising data
• Formulating a statistics question based on data that vary allows for distinction between different types of data. 

7.SP.6
Representing data graphically and numerically
• Methods of representing data. Students develop a sense that data can convey information and that organising data in different ways can help clarify what the data have to tell us. They see a data set as a whole and so are able to use fractions, quartiles and median to describe the data.
• Mean of a grouped frequency distribution. 

7.SP.7
Analysing, interpreting and drawing conclusions from data
• Drawing conclusions from data; limitations of conclusions.

Number

7.NS.1

• The binary operations of addition, subtraction multiplication and division and the relationships between these operations, beginning with whole numbers and integers. They explore some of the laws that govern these operations and use mathematical models to reinforce the algorithms they commonly use. Later, they revisit these operations in the context of rational numbers and irrational numbers (R/Q) and refine, revise and consolidate their ideas. Students learn strategies for computation that can be applied to any numbers; implicit in such computational methods are generalisations about numerical relationships with the operations being used.
• Students articulate the generalisation that underlies their strategy, firstly in the vernacular and then in symbolic language.
• Problems set in context, using diagrams to solve the problems so they can appreciate how the mathematical concepts are related to real life. Algorithms used to solve problems involving fractional amounts. 

7.NS.2
Indices
• Binary operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division in the context of numbers in index form. 

7.NS.3

• Using ratio and proportionality.

• Problems involving surface area and volume.
• Modelling realworld situations and solve a variety of problems (including multistep problems) involving surface areas, and volumes of prisms and cylinders.
• Students learn about the circle and develop an understanding of the relationship between its circumference, diameter and pi.
