Statistics

Level 1

In a range of meaningful contexts, students will be engaged in thinking mathematically and statistically. They will solve problems and model situations that require them to:

Statistics

Statistical Investigation

–     Conduct investigations using the statistical enquiry cycle:

–       posing and answering questions;

–       gathering, sorting and counting, and displaying category data;

–       discussing the results.

Statistical Literacy

–     Interpret statements made by others from statistical investigations and probability activities.

Probability

–      Investigate situations that involve elements of chance, acknowledging and anticipating possible outcomes.

Level 2

In a range of meaningful contexts, students will be engaged in thinking mathematically and statistically. They will solve problems and model situations that require them to:

Statistics

Statistical investigation

–    Conduct investigations, using the statistical enquiry cycle:

–       posing and answering questions;

–       gathering, sorting, and displaying category and whole number data;

–       communicating findings based on the data.

Statistical literacy

–        Compare statements with the features of simple data displays from statistical investigations or probability activities undertaken by others.

Probability

–    Investigate simple situations that involve elements of chance, recognising equal and different likelihoods and acknowledging uncertainty.

Level 3

In a range of meaningful contexts, students will be engaged in thinking mathematically and statistically. They will solve problems and model situations that require them to:

Statistics

Statistical investigation

–    Conduct investigations using the statistical enquiry cycle:

–       gathering, sorting, and displaying multivariate category and whole number data and simple time-series data to answer questions;

–       identifying patterns and trends in context, within and between data sets;

–       communicating findings, using data displays.

Statistical literacy

–        Evaluate the effectiveness of different displays in representing the findings of a statistical investigation or probability activity undertaken by others.
