OCR MEI Statistics 2 : Normal distribution 2 - Backwards & Approximations

OCR MEI Statistics 2 : Normal distribution 2 - Backwards & Approximations

The presentation builds on the preceding "OCR MEI Statistics 2 : Normal Distribution Intro" presentation to - demonstrate working back from a probability back to a test score, given mu and sigma - find mu and sigma using simultaneous equations given a pair of test scores and associated probabilities - use the Normal with continuity corrections to find probabilities for discrete variables - use the Normal as an approximating distribution for the Poisson and for the Binomial Included with the presentation are a 'starter' task sheet that looks back to the previous lesson (and extends forward into this one), a flowchart exercise to help students understand the conditions under which all of the distributions so far encountered can be used, and a sheet that summarises 'exam formalities', ie. how to lay-out the start of an exam answer in order not to lose any marks on "the basics". Any feedback is always welcome; especially if it's a mistake spotted!

OCR MEI Statistics 2 : Normal Distribution Intro

OCR MEI Statistics 2 : Normal Distribution Intro

This presentation introduces the Normal distribution and its properties, and provides step-by-step examples of how to standardise scores (find z values) and hence find probabilities in simple cases: eg. the probability of a height above a given value, below a given value or between two values. It is not therefore specific to OCR or MEI and could be used for any maths/stats course where such an introduction is needed.

BTEC Assignment Briefs (1 - 4) Unit 8: Using Statistics for Science

BTEC Assignment Briefs (1 - 4) Unit 8: Using Statistics for Science

This unit enables the learner to use statistical techniques that are essential for the handling, collection and interpretation of scientific data. This contains BTEC assignments for Unit 8: Using Statistics for Science. All of them have been screened for internal verification. Should you need to adapt this for your teaching you may ask your internal verifier to double check them. They have been written in alignment with the learning outcomes of Unit 8. After download you may change the front cover to your own schools logo.

Standard Deviation Horse Racing

Standard Deviation Horse Racing

This activity invites learners to use calculator skills to find the mean and standard deviation, using statistics students work together to decide on which horse will do the best of 5 races. The powerpoint presentation animates the horse race.

The Standard Normal Distribution

The Standard Normal Distribution

A set of ten Standard Normal Curves(You know how tricky it is to get the students to draw a nice graph first!) either to use as a match card activity or any set of questions on The Normal Distribution.

Statistics: (S1) Skewness (Pearson's / Quartiles / Standard Deviation) + worksheet

Statistics: (S1) Skewness (Pearson's / Quartiles / Standard Deviation) + worksheet

This is a whole lesson looking at the different aspects of skewness, what it is, how to calculate it and maybe most importantly interpreting the results in terms of the data. The lesson look at how to calculate using Pearson's measure of Skewness, the Quartile Skewness and also how to calculate using the IQR for Outliers. 14 slides. The lesson includes a starter, learning objectives, keywords, superb clear teaching slides and examples, worksheet with mark scheme and plenary.

IB Math SL TI-Nspire Statistics & Probability Calculator Guide

IB Math SL TI-Nspire Statistics & Probability Calculator Guide

This guide is helpful for students and teachers in International Baccalaureate Math Standard Level. This 6 page document covers three main topics: Statistics, Binomial Distribution, and Normal Distribution. The guide instructs students on what buttons to press and what each of the features will do. From adding spreadsheets, analyzing a set of data, finding the linear regression, using the binomial pdf and cdf features, and using the normal pdf and cdf and inverse Norm features, this guide is a create tool to summarize what the students need to know for the calculator portion of the IB Math SL test. There are a few short examples (with answers provided) for students to test their understanding of the calculator features.

Statistics: Normal Distribution Bundle (4 Lessons) - Perfect for S1 and S2

Statistics: Normal Distribution Bundle (4 Lessons) - Perfect for S1 and S2

This is four excellent lessons. All the lessons are approximately 25 slides and should be enough for a long double A-Level lesson (1hr 40 - 2hours) Lesson 1 - Standard Normal / Introduction Lesson 2 - Non Standard / Standardizing Lesson 3 - Backwards and Problems Lesson 4 - Approximation for Binomial Distribution NOTE: Feel free to browse my shop for more excellent free and premium resources and as always please rate and feedback, thank you.

Statistics: (S1) Normal Distribution 3 - Backwards and Further Problems (+ worksheets)

Statistics: (S1) Normal Distribution 3 - Backwards and Further Problems (+ worksheets)

This is the third of four lessons on the normal distribution, which builds on the first two lessons. This is your A/A* material, looking at different types of questions and problems. This is an excellent resource, with lots and lots of excellent teaching slides, 21 slides. Specifically, this lesson is for teaching about how to work backwards and different questions. It does touch on linear combinations, so I recommend teaching that first (also available from my shop) and looks in detail at little issues/ mistakes that people can make. This is a vital lesson for your top end students and gives less able students more time to practise the normal distribution. I have therefore included two worksheets (exam questions) aimed at different abilities students and then come with accompanying mark schemes.

Statistics: (S1) Normal Distribution 2 - Non / Not Standard (+ Worksheet)

Statistics: (S1) Normal Distribution 2 - Non / Not Standard (+ Worksheet)

This is the second of four lessons on the normal distribution, which builds on the first lesson that introduced the topic by looking at what to do when data is not in the standard normal form. This is an excellent resource, with lots and lots of excellent teaching slides, 21 slides. Specifically, this lesson is for teaching what is the normal distribution is, the criteria for using it and how and HOW TO STANDARDISE, and again how to use lookup tables to solve problems that are in a standard normal form having standardised. I have also included questions I often used with accompanying mark scheme.
