Statistics is about making decisions when there is uncertainty. Perhaps one of the most versatile areas of maths, it gives students the skills to collect, analyse, interpret and present data.
It complements subjects such as GCSE Biology, Psychology, Geography, Business and Economics, and opens the door to a variety of careers – from weather forecasting to the biological sciences.
Topics are clearly and logically structured and include:
ü understanding the importance of careful planning, a clear strategy for collecting, recording and processing data in order to address an identified question or hypothesis.
ü generating data visualisation and understanding the maths involved.
