Mathematics - Statistics at Hereford Sixth Form College

Course description

Statistics is the branch of Mathematics which is used in situations involving variability or uncertainty, such as weather forecasting, finance, or assessing the effects of medicines. The course builds on descriptive statistics, such as averages, and leads on to testing whether an observed result is statistically different from what might be expected. For example, is the proportion of babies born with birth defects significantly higher in the neighbourhood of a nuclear power plant or not?
