Statistics 1 - Normal Distribution - KS4 and S1

Statistics 1 - Normal Distribution - KS4 and S1

The following sheet is an activity that explores the normal distribution function. Ideal for KS4 and Post16 students. Norm Dist 1 - explores how the mean and standard deviation effect the normal distribution function Norm Dist 2 - explores the probability distribution for a symmetrical two tailed event Norm Dist 3 - explores the probability of a general two tailed event You will need to allow macros to run when using most of the sheets available here. This can be checked by opening Excel and clicking :- Tools Macros Security and choosing Medium or Low security.

Statistics 1- Probability simulations.Coin, dice.

Statistics 1- Probability simulations.Coin, dice.

A selection of probability simulations for AS Statistics modules. Consists of 3 coin, 1 die, 2 dice and venn diagram simulations. Microsoft Excel is spreadsheet software, designed to manipulate and view numerical data such as statistics. You will need to allow macros to run when using most of the sheets available here. This can be checked by opening Excel and clicking Tools Macros Security and choosing Medium or Low security. Also, some sheets require you have Analysis ToolPak installed - this is found by clicking Tools Add ins (you may need the original MS Office disks to do this).

Geometric Distribution Simulation. Statistics. 16+

Geometric Distribution Simulation. Statistics. 16+

Provides an interactive introduction to the concept of the Geometric Distribution in statistics. You need Macros enabled. It goes from the a simple simulation of rolling a dice until you obtain the first six, to performing the experiment an increasing number of times, leading finally into the full probability distribution. You need to have Macros enabled in Excel.

Stats 1 crossword

Stats 1 crossword

A crossword to help students revise key aspects of the OCR S1 module, made using Hot Potatoes. There are two versions - an interactive web page, and a Word document for use with good old paper and pen. If you use this resource, please take the time to review it. Any comments will be carefully noted. Topics also included: revision.

Central Limit Theorem Simulation. Post 16.

Central Limit Theorem Simulation. Post 16.

Illustrates the Central Limit Theorem in Statistics, by means of a simulation, where you can add up to 10 Uniform(0,1) random variables and observe the shape of the resulting distribution (shown with a histogram and a frequency polygon) getting closer to the Bell Shaped Curve as you increase the number of random variables, intervals and simulations.

Succession in Randomia - Probability Investigation

Succession in Randomia - Probability Investigation

Another number problem from N-rich. This activity involves working out the probability of getting two outcomes when tossing a coin to see which event, if any, is more likely. This would make an ideal investigation lesson into probability for KS4. Pupils drawing probability trees would be a good extension. Teacher notes and a full set of solutions are provided to help with planning. By tossing a coin one of three princes is chosen to be the next King of Randomia. Does each prince have an equal chance of taking the throne?

Statistics Statements. Investigation16+

Statistics Statements. Investigation16+

A good thinking exercise for students on statistics. This investigation is suitable for a S1 class. Are these statistical statements sometimes, always or never true? Or it is impossible to say?
