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 a statistical experiment, probability simulation and a survey.
You will also analyse different types of data from a range of situations, including experimental, multivariate, probability and surveys.
This course allows you to understand, interpret and evaluate statistics from real life much more deeply.
After successfully completing this course you will be able to continue your statistics journey into a university approved pathway, to year 13 Practical Statistics. Where new topics will be studied and the topics covered this year will be delved into more deeply.
Those students who plan to sit Statistics Scholarship examination in 2022 should take 12MATS or 12MATP in 2021 and progress to 13STAT in 2022.
Those students who plan to progress in a Mathematics related discipline such as Science, Economics or Engineering should take 12MATP or 12MATS.
The standards offered in this course may be altered at the discretion of the Head of Department.
From 11MATG at least 12 credits including AS1.12 or invitation by HOD.* (based on Entrance Exams and Internal Assessment results)
