Dear Yup Math Tutors:
Since we are aligning ourselves to offer help with all middle and high school Common Core Math Standards, it is important that we start helping students with probability and statistics problems.
This includes problems about mean, median, mode, standard deviation, variance, box and whisker plots, dot plots, histograms, quartiles etc., which we encourage you to look into further if you are not familiar with them.
If you are at all unsure of what probability and statistics material is covered under Common Core, please review the following link where you can review all probabilities and statistics curriculum we need to cover.
If you do not feel comfortable with any of the material, we found an online course called “Common Core Math – Statistics & Probability: High School Standards” through study.com that does a great job of reviewing everything you need to know. Study.com offers a free 5-day trial in case you would like to go through the lessons in detail. As long as you cancel your subscription within the 5 day free-trial you will not be charged anything. Without an account you should still be able to review the syllabus, as well as take the lesson quizzes and chapter exams. We are in the process of deciding whether or not to sign Yup up for this service, so any feedback you have on the the course would be greatly appreciated.
Please let us know at email@example.com if you feel that you are not able to help students in any of these areas, and we will work together to get you up to speed.
