An introduction to Statistics Presentation About this course

What is statistics?

Statistics is used to research, model, understand, analyse and predict data for situations which involve uncertainty or variability.

 

What will I study?

The subject is taught in a practical way, with multiple mini experiments, practical activities and opportunities to collect data and investigate real problems and their solutions using different methods of sampling. The course builds on the topic of data handling, the practical applications of correlation and regression, including their application in the world of business. Probability theory is expanded with the introduction of binomial and normal distribution. We also study a variety of different hypothesis tests which many of the students meet in their other A level subjects. This course strongly supports the statistics needed in other subjects at A level and university courses.

 

Trips, visits and enrichments:
