1). Summarize and describe the distribution of a categorical variable in context.
2). Generate and interpret several different graphical displays of the distribution of a quantitative variable (histogram, stemplot, boxplot).
3). Summarize and describe the distribution of a quantitative variable in context: a) describe the overall pattern, b) describe striking deviations from the pattern.
4). Relate measures of center and spread to the shape of the distribution, and choose the appropriate measures in different contexts.
5). Compare and contrast distributions (of quantitative data) from two or more groups, and produce a brief summary, interpreting your findings in context.
5). Apply the standard deviation rule to the special case of distributions having the "normal" shape.
