13STPR

Level 3 Practical Statistics

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr G. Atkinson

Practical Statistics supports your understanding of mathematics and builds on your knowledge using the statistical inquiry cycle. You will research, plan, conduct, collect the data, employ the correct analyses, and effectively present the results of an experiment or observational study. 

You will also analyse different types of data from a range of situations, including experimental, multivariate, bi-variate, time-series and surveys and polls.

This course allows you to understand, interpret and evaluate statistics from real life much more deeply. 

After successfully completing this course you will never look at data from media in the same way and you will have a higher level of understanding about the process of writing a statistical report. 


This course is oriented towards internally assessed standards with one externally assessed standard.

This is an approved subject for University Entrance.


The standards offered in this course may be altered at the discretion of the Head of Department.
