NOTE: PC Device (PC Laptop / Surface / MacBook) is strongly recommended as the course requires the use of spreadsheets and statistical software (this software does not come at any cost).

What should I have already achieved?
        Recommended entry requirements:
  • 10 NCEA Level 2 Maths or Stats credits and/or...
  • Merit in at least one Level 2 Maths or Stats external assessment (recommended is AS91267 - Probability). 
        If a student does not meet the requirements of this course they will need to speak with the Curriculum               Leader of Mathematics & Statistics in the first instance.

What will I learn?

        This course is an introduction to key statistical ideas and skills transferable to tertiary study in statistics.           In addition these ideas and skills will prepare students for fieldwork where the collection, analysis and               interpretation of quantitative and qualitative data is important. 
        The course may complement aspects of NCEA Level 3 Biology and NCEA Level 3 Geography.
        Students will develop a systematic understanding of patterns in real world data. Statistical models and             frameworks for data analysis will the used to make judgements (or statistical inferences).
        Students will produce their own reports, and develop the skills needed to critique common place statistics         and statistical reports such as media articles and survey reports.

How will this course be assessed? 

        A maximum of 20 credits is available in this course with 3 internal assessments worth 12 credits and 2             external assessments worth 8 credits
