About the Apps

Comments

While there are not tons of apps to teach high school students how to collect and interpret data or estimate the probability of a particular statement or outcome, our selections are heads and tails above anything else you will find.

For starters, we recommend two apps that curate lessons from online education pioneer Khan Academy.

For statistics, Khan Academy: Statistics has many examples that demonstrate how to solve problems in each of the 28 lessons it presents. Lessons like: The Average, Sample Mean, Variance, Standard Deviation, Density Functions, Distributions, Law of Large Numbers, Limit Theorem, and many more relevant topics. If a student were to complete this entire series of videos (which are separate and easy to re-sequence), he or she would have a solid understanding of High School Statistics.

Our favorite probability app is Khan Academy: Probability, which has a lot of pragmatic problem solving. Many examples that demonstrate how to solve problems in each of the 25 lessons presented. Lessons like: Probabilities, Permutations, Combinations, Random Variables, Probability Densities, Binomial Distributions, Poisson Processes, and many more relevant topics. If a student were to complete this series of videos, they would have a solid understanding of High School Probability.

The Data & Statistics app is where your student will be tested on the technical detail of the first two apps. This app does an in-app upgrade providing more that 1200 additional test question for charge of under $5.

Statistics Pro is a good one to follow the quizes. It is a calculator with training wheels. If the student passes the quizzes with a fairly good result, this app will provide a vehicle to try-out this newly learned information, by enteing creative raw data into the labled calculator entry boxes and to observe the changing result.

Finally we have Probabilities, a calculator without training wheels (which is not for everyone). Advanced students may want to expand their knowledge a bit.
