Constructing statistical application tasks in Further Mathematics


As part of their school-based assessment, Further Mathematics students are required to complete a statistical Application Task. This session aims to guide participants through the process of taking a data set and using it to develop the sort of questions suitable for use when constructing a statistical analysis task. Topics covered will include, finding suitable real-world data sets and the many pitfalls, primary versus secondary data, sampling, formulating appropriate statistical questions that cover an appropriate range of levels of difficulty and why it is hard to find a single real-world context that will cover the full breadth of the curriculum. Web references to some data sets that might be used suitable for constructing future tasks will be provided.
