Statistics activity: Statistical terms and Describing data

An introduction to statistics for A-level biologists. Takes the student through terms and symbols used, then puts them through several instructions on Microsoft Excel. After this students should be able to describe their data (range, median, standard deviation, etc) but this does not extend to choosing an appropriate statistical test. Takes nearly two hours with plenty of talk around the subject and examples. I recommend you try the exercise beforehand.
