Additional Resources by Content Area

Statistics & Probability

The aim of the probability unit is two-fold: it provides certain understandings intrinsic to problem solving and it underpins the statistics unit. It is expected that the conduct of experiments (including simulations), both individually and in groups, will form the primary vehicle through which the knowledge, understanding and skills in probability are developed. References should be made to appropriate contexts and applications of probability.

It is envisaged that throughout the statistics course learners will be involved in identifying problems that can be explored by the use of appropriate data, designing investigations, collecting data, exploring and using patterns and relationships in data, solving problems, and communicating findings. This strand also involves interpreting statistical information, evaluating data-based arguments, and dealing with uncertainty and variation.

General Resources

Some useful resources for teaching Probability and Statistics can be found on the Workshop and Event Resources Page, in particular, NQT Workshop 2 (2018 – 2019), Project Maths Workshops 1, 5 and 10 and Project Maths Modular Course 1 (2008 – 2015).

The Census at School Resources and Guide Page contains an overview of how to use Census at School for the teaching of Statistics.
The Data Handling Cycle document provides an overview of the data-handling cycle.
GeoGebra tutorials on using the Spreadsheet View and Probability Functions may useful for the teaching of Probability and Statistics.

Resources by Syllabus Outcome

1.2 Concepts of Probability

Relative Frequency

This GeoGebra file allows students to use a virtual spinner to investigate the relationship between probability and relative frequency.

 

1.6 Representing Data Graphically and Numerically

Investigating Correlation

This task encourages students to investigate correlation. The  Student Task PDF contains a  worksheet investigating relationships. There is a link to a GeoGebra File, instructions on how to plot the line of best fit and some extension questions. There is an additional  GeoGebra File (2) for investigating the line of best fit.

Investigating Bivariate Data

This Video shows a group of students investigating bivariate data.

 

 

1.7 Analysing, Interpreting and drawing inferences from Data

This Instructions Manual explains how to use GeoGebra to investigate the empirical rule.
