In this article from "The Statistics Teacher Network", volume 79 pages 2-5, Jessica Cohen explains where and how Statistics and Probability fit into the Common Core State Standards. Cohen explains grade by grade where statistics fits into the CCSS standards and then explains how probability fits in even though there are no probability standards prior to Grade 6.

    • This article lists all of the standards from CCSS that include statistics and probability, eventhough there is no strand dedicated to just Statistics and Probability. This is essential for teachers to realize that these skills are still taught eventhough they do not stand on their own.
