    Love this resource – but I wonder, is there are heading page missing for Statistics/Probabilility/Data (with a purple background)? Similar to the yellow Measurement and Geometry and blue Number headings.

    A great resource – but I too would like for a purple title card for statistics and probability to match the others.
    Thanks so much
