Hypothesis Test for a Population Mean - Analogy to a Criminal Trial

Hypothesis Test for a Population Mean - Analogy to a Criminal Trial

This is a student workbook that can supplement lessons on hypothesis tests for a population mean. I teach the stages of hypothesis testing using analogies to a criminal trial. My students like this comparison; they are more engaged and it helps them to see the relevance of the different stages. Once students are confident with the terminology, we create our own courtroom in the classroom and role-play the stages of hypothesis testing with students acting as the jury, prosecution, judge and defence. Contents of the workbook 1. A summary of the 5 stages of hypothesis testing 2. A detailed analogy to a criminal trial 3. One worked example 4. Space for students to complete their own examples. 5. Worksheets on: a. the null and alternative hypothesis b. type I and type II errors c. checking assumptions d. sampling distributions e. the normal distribution f. the t-distribution g. interpreting p-values Answers for worksheets provided in separate document. The preview file shows a selection of pages from the workbook.

Team Revision Tasks - Statistics 1 (Edexcel)

Team Revision Tasks - Statistics 1 (Edexcel)

These are an attempt to break from the monotony of past papers in the run up to exam season. I have taken 2 questions from past papers and put them on one sheet; I will photocopy onto A3 for students to have a go in groups and discuss. The aims/rules etc are all listed if you wish to follow them and hopefully they all make sense. I have also provided answers.

Statistics 2 - 15 min exam question challenges

Statistics 2 - 15 min exam question challenges

A collection of exam question challenges for the Edexcel Statistics 2 specification. Each worksheet consists of 2 or 3 sets of questions arranged in difficulty order. Each set of questions should take between 15-20 minutes to complete. How they are used can be up to the teacher, I have used these as either starter or plenary activities during review lessons where students are given a choice of which set of questions to complete in the 15 minute time limit. Then in pairs or groups work through any problems they may have encountered.

Continuous Random Variables Topic Mat

Continuous Random Variables Topic Mat

A mat to summarise key concepts from the S2 topic Continuous Random variables(Edexcel). I also include a suggestion for how the mat could be filled out. I usually use it as a plenary – ask the pupils for the key ideas from the lesson and collectively fill in sections over a sequence of lessons. At the end of a topic they have a topic mat from which to revise from. I also photocopy them on different coloured paper so they act as dividers in students’ folders. I am creating these resources as part of an action research project at my school looking at preparation for improving students retention across a two year linear course and trying to bring the science of memory into the classroom. If you have used these resources and have any comments/feedback/ideas please comment or contact me - thanks!

The presentation also covers median, quartiles, mean, variance and standard deviation. SMART Notebook Express presentations can be used for free by using SMART online or by downloading SMART software, also free, I use it because it allows a more interactive presentation than a powerpoint. Just search 'SMART Notebook Express' and try it with my free SMART resource.
