Statistics are being used at an increasing rate in business, politics and the sciences. In the real world we are constantly bombarded, through the media, with graphs, economic data such as retail price index (RPI) and various other statistical statements.

Pupils will find that understanding statistics is important in all aspects of everyday life. On completion of this course pupils should have a far greater understanding of how to interpret and use statistical statements.

In this course, pupils will learn how to collect unbiased data and how to summarise and represent it. An important part of statistics is using the available data to predict what will happen in the future. Pupils will learn how to reason, interpret and discuss results, and how to make forecasts based on these results. This course will give pupils the skills to read and analyse data. They will learn to interpret various diagrams and statistical statements accurately and will also be able to appreciate when statistical statements are exaggerated.
