Hi my name is Julia Rivera and major is Math Education. Once I become a teacher I would teach either middle school or high school students where they will have to learn the basics of probability and statistics. It is important to learn probability and statistics because it is useful for students and once they learn the basics there are able to advance to higher courses in the future. This is important because students will be able to practice using fractions, ratios and percent. From this they will be able to gain and utilize these skills in gambling, sports (where they can predict the winner), knowing the temperature or weather forecast, or looking at data. It is also required for students to learn about probability and statistics during their school years because its part of state standards.
