  1. Numeracy, which includes topics such as percentages, ratios, estimation, magnitude, interest and loans, rates, probability, proportional reasoning, relative growth, and conditional probability.
  2. Modeling, which includes topics such as variables, equations, graphs, tables, linear models, piecewise models, exponential models, log operations, and multivariate models.
  3. Statistics, which includes topics such as data visualization and interpretation, statistical analysis process, experimental designs and conclusions, parameters, interval estimates, distributions, statistical inference including Z-scores and P-values.
