Higher C1, C2 Revision PowerPoint - Post 16.

An interactive PowerPoint which goes over each topic and exam type questions of C1 and C2. It has full solutions and markers comments. I usually give pupils a copy of this as a revision aid, it’s an excellent resource!

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.

Autograph Video Special 2 - Normal Distribution

Autograph Video Special 2 - Normal Distribution

A tutorial on how to use the Normal Distribution in Autograph. Douglas Butler, the Autograph creator, looks at a really interesting way of how we can fit a normal distribution to data using Autograph. To see all the videos in Mr Barton’s Autograph Video series, just click on the web-link below.

A Close Approximation

A Close Approximation

This activity compares a Binomial distribution with its Poisson Approximation. Are there values where the approximation is particularly good? The task requires finding where two almost-identical graphs cross. From the collection at www.making-statistics-vital.co.uk

Sample Mean Distribution Sudoku

Sample Mean Distribution Sudoku

Group or paired task. The idea here is to create a logic puzzle (akin to a Suduko) that at the same time tests students’ understanding of the distribution of the sample mean.Suitable for KS5 (S1, S2) A filling-the-gaps-type 'puzzle' that makes sure students are happy with the mean and variance of the sample mean for a Normal distribution. A certain amount of number theory is required here too to find the unique answer.

Test Table: S2 revision of hypothesis test

Test Table: S2 revision of hypothesis test

This activity sets out to revise tests and hypotheses in general. By the end of their A2 Statistics course, students will have met a range of different hypothesis tests, all with slightly different ways of structuring things. This activity aims to bring them all together into a single table.

Ten-Point PMCC

Ten-Point PMCC

Product-Moment Correlation Coefficient activity. Can you give ten points on a scatter diagram so that the PMCC is exactly 0.99? From the collection at www.making-statistics-vital.co.uk

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?

Time to Evolve 2

Time to Evolve 2

This online task involves investigating pdfs and modelling though the uniform distribution. It combines some theoretical analysis of mean and variance and can be used to create an intuition that the sum of random variables tends to a normal distribution with the aid of a spreadsheet simulation (resource included). It is a common misconception that the sum of uniform random variables is also uniform and this problem will allow students to see that this is not the case in a meaningful context.
