# STATISTICS LEVEL 1 (AS LEVEL)

**COURSE CONTENT:**

In this Statistics Level 1 course the trainer will cover the following topics:

- Data presentation and interpretation
- Statistical distributions
- Statistical hypothesis testing
- Preparing for the new A-level Maths specification will also be addressed.

**LEARNING OBJECTIVES:**

By attending this course and covering the topics you should be to achieve the following using a Casio graphic calculator:

Be able to calculate standard deviation. Interpret diagrams for single-variable data. Interpret scatter diagrams and regression lines for bivariate data.

Understand and use simple, discrete probability distributions, including the binomial distribution,as a model; calculate probabilities using the binomial distribution.

Understand and apply the language of statistical hypothesis testing, developed through a binomial model: null hypothesis, alternative hypothesis, significance level, test statistic, 1-tail test, 2-tail test, critical value, critical region, acceptance region, p-value. Conduct a statistical hypothesis test for the proportion in the binomial distribution and interpret the results in context.

**LEVEL**

Qualification: AS/Core. This course is most suited for professionals teaching AS-level Mathematics in the UK.
