Statistics for A level Biology

This is a very useful and comprehensive resource for students studying A level Biology. A great refresher for the teacher too or someone teaching Biology who may not be so confident when it comes to teaching statistics.
The resource is a 22 page booklet which covers all the key aspects of statistics required for Biology at A level.
There are worked examples and questions for the students to work through.
This booklet has been designed to be fully explanatory so that students can work through it independently.
The booklet is fully comprehensive and no other resources are needed; all probability tables are given with the questions.
The key topics covered in the booklet are:
1.) Why use statistics on data
2.) Calculating standard deviation and its meaning
3.) The student t-test
4.) The Spearman rank correlation coefficient
5.) The Chi-squared test

The booklet should take approximately two 1 hour lessons to complete, dependent on how familiar the students are with statistics. Those studying A level Maths and Geography may be more confident working through the calculations and understanding the outcomes.

A separate answer booklet is provided with answers to all questions given.
