Teacher in Charge: Mr C. Walton
The course covers an introduction to probability theory and to the analysis of data, in preparation for university level statistics papers. Analysis of data will require students to complete research and write analytical reports. These reports are generally 35 pages long and require a good level of literacy. The course is assessed through Level 3 achievement standards. Entry for the external achievement standards is dependent on passing the appropriate formative assessment.
A student will be withdrawn from a standard if the teacher is not confident that the achievement of the standard is within the reach of the student or there is no evidence of the student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.
2x Maths Exercise Book (1J5) or Ringbinder and A4 Refill, ruler, Casio Graphical Calculator (from school office)
It is recommended that students bring their own device eg laptop, chromebook or similar. For the externals, a Casio FX 9750GA Plus graphics calculator is highly recommended. Though expensive, students are at a disadvantage in external examinations without it.
Recommendation from teacher of Level 2 Mathematics and 15 L2 credits which must include 1) AS91256 or AS91269; 2) AS91265 or AS91264 or one from either of the two English standards AS91098 or AS91099; and 3) the external AS91267.
This course is eligible for subject endorsement.
This course is approved for University Entrance.
