S6-1: Plan and conduct investigations using the statistical enquiry cycle: justifying the variables and measures used; managing sources of variation, including through the use of random sampling; identifying and communicating features in context (trends,
In this unit, based on the survey instrument and data used in the Census At School: New Zealand project, students learn about the notion of a distribution, and compare distributions of different variables. Several relevant Level 7 Achievement Objectives are addressed in this unit.
Calculate meansChoose appropriate ways of grouping continuous variables in order to represent them on histogramsCompare two distributionsDiscuss the difference between the distribution of a variable and the distribution of the mean of a variable.
This unit involves students formulating questions about data sets, displaying and analysing data as well as reporting their conclusions. Information about the pregnancies of 56 woman and their newborn babies is used as a context.
write and answer a question that compares sets of statistical data justify the answer to a question with reference to graphs and statistical calculations compare data about two variables by finding mean, median, modes, range and interquartile range compare data about two variables by drawing graphs...
In this unit students look at the components of time series. They compare sets of data using displays, use associated vocabulary and determine appropriate statistics. They interpret their results and draw conclusions. From given sets of data and other information they predict population figures.
