Stats modelling in A level Maths CPD.Stoke on Trent
At A level students are required to translate situations in context into models and then apply the model. They need to recognise its limitations and how to refine it. We will explore what this means in the context of statistics and how best to prepare students to respond to modeling questions.
- Understand the different types of statistical models students are expected to use in A level.
- Explore activities that can develop students' ability to model
Who will benefit from attending?
Teachers who wish to learn more about how to best prepare their students for the Statistical Modelling questions in A-level Mathematics.
We will discuss how students are expected to apply the statistical content that they have learnt (such as the standard distributions, hypothesis testing and correlation & regression) to modelling questions. We will look at a range of modelling questions and analyse how students can be best prepared for these types of question and what activties help promote an understanding of the modelling process.
