- Data Analysis and Probability
- use proportionality and a basic understanding of probability to make and test conjectures about the results of experiments and simulations
- Many experiences are needed to build understanding of proportional reasoning.
The fact that many aspects of our world operate according to proportional rules
makes this reasoning essential in the interpretation of real world phenomenon.
Thus, proportionality serves as a bridge to the more abstract relationships addressed in the formal study of algebra. --PBS Mathline
