The first two modules of the course focused on content from strand 1 of the syllabuse – statistics. This content comprised material deferred during the introduction of the new project maths syllabus – namely inferential statistics. Topics visited included sampling variability, the relationships between a population and a sample and hypothesis testing.
The final two modules of the course focused on content relating to strand 5 of the syllabus – functions. Emphasis was placed on understanding what makes a relationship a function and the different types of function (surjective, injective, bijective) which exist.
