**Subject Area:**Mathematics

**Grade:**912

**Domain-Subdomain:**Statistics & Probability: Conditional Probability & the Rules of Probability

**Cluster:**Level 2: Basic Application of Skills & Concepts

**Cluster:**Understand independence and conditional probability and use them to interpret data. (Algebra 2 - Additional Cluster) -

Clusters should not be sorted from Major to Supporting and then taught in that order. To do so would strip the coherence of the mathematical ideas and miss the opportunity to enhance the major work of the grade with the supporting clusters.
