Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr R. Thompson

Recommended Prior Learning

At least 14 credits from Level 1 mathematics achievement standards and teacher recommendation.

This course provides a pathway towards Statistics and is designed to give students a grounding in statistics, while also containing the more accessible numerical work at Level 2. It is ideal for those students studying other Level 2 courses which contain an element of mathematics and those heading for Level 3 Statistics.

A student will be withdrawn from a standard if the teacher is not confident that the achievement of the standard is within the reach of the student or there is no evidence of the student attempting the assessment.
