Collect, summarise, display and analyse data and to apply knowledge of statistics and probability to communicate, justify, predict and critically interrogate findings and draw conclusions.
Appropriately choose and interpret the use of methods to summarise and display data in statistical charts and graphs including the use of scatter-plots and intuitively-placed lines of best fit to:
> represent the association between variables (regression analysis not included);
> describe trends (eg. a positive linear association)
Compare different sets of data by calculating and using measures of central tendency and spread, including:
> variance (interpretation only);
> standard deviation (interpretation only);
Represent and critically analyse data, statistics and probability values in order to draw conclusions on problems investigated and to predict trends.
Critically engage with the use of probability values in making predictions of outcomes in the context of games and real-life situations.
Critically evaluate statistically-based arguments, describe the use and misuse of statistics in society, and make well-justified recommendations.
Investigate a problem on issues such as those related to:
> social, environmental and political factors;
> people’s opinions;
> human rights and inclusivity by: using appropriate statistical methods; selecting a representative sample from a population with due sensitivity to issues relating to bias; comparing data from different sources and samples.
