Middle School Probability and Statistics

Recommended Posts

How essential is it to have a good grasp on probability and statistics during middle school math (Prealgebra  / MM7).    We are still finishing last year's math (!!) but I am debating doing a quick overview rather than spending a lot of time mastering these topics.   Just wondering if this would hurt in the long run.

I think it’s important to cover it at some point, but I don’t think you must do it now. Don’t worry. Just prioritize other topics and you can circle back to those later. 

I just looked at MM7. I would personally cover  Probability over the summer. As far as stats is concerned, I would wait and do a year of stats in high school and no, you don’t need a previous knowledge to do well.
