Modules - Statistics

Level 1       Level 2       Level 3       Level 4       Level 5       . . . . .

Level 1 is Years 5-7, Level 6 Years 11-12.

The main use students will have in later life for the statistics they learn is in interpreting data presentations and critically assessing data presentations that make a point. These are thus the primary thrusts of the strand, though other skills like presenting data (especially with technology), calculating statistical measures etc. are covered.

Most data presentations in the media are not one of the 'standard' types normally learnt at school. Thus, time is devoted to learning to understand, interpret and read unfamiliar data presentations. With this skill, reading the 'standard' types comes fairly naturally.
