11-16 teaching and learning resources - Statistics
Please note: many of these resources were developed by the legacy Further Mathematics Support Programme or the legacy Further Maths Network and may contain links to websites and resources which are no longer available.
1. Infer properties of populations or distributions from a sample, whilst knowing the limitations of sampling.
2. Interpret and constructs tables, charts and diagrams, including frequency tables, bar charts, pie charts and pictograms for categorical data, vertical line charts for ungrouped discrete numerical data, tables and line graphs for time series data and know their appropriate use.
3. Construct and interpret diagrams for grouped discrete data and continuous data, i.e. histograms with equal and unequal class intervals and cumulative frequency graphs, and know their appropriate use.
4. Interpret, analyse and compare the distributions of data sets from univariate empirical distributions through: appropriate measures of central tendency (median, mean, mode and modal class) and spread (range, including consideration of outliers, quartiles and inter-quartile range).
6. Use and interpret scatter graphs of bivariate data; recognise correlation and know that it does not indicate causation; draw estimated lines of best fit; make predictions; interpolate and extrapolate apparent trends whilst knowing the dange of so doing.
