Statistics (2015) foundation

Statistics

What students need to learn:

S1 infer properties of populations or distributions from a sample, while knowing the limitations of sampling
S2 interpret and construct 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
S4 interpret, analyse and compare the distributions of data sets from
univariate empirical distributions through:
● appropriate graphical representation involving discrete, continuous and grouped data
● appropriate measures of central tendency (median, mean, mode and modal class) and spread (range, including consideration of outliers)
S5 apply statistics to describe a population
S6 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 while knowing the dangers of so doing
