Statistics GCSE at Cromwell Community College

Course description

Statistics (with Separate Sciences) What Will I Study? Statistics are all around us! Facts, figures, graphs, charts and diagrams are everywhere! Much research is concerned with collecting the right sort of data in the right sort of way and drawing correct, accurate and appropriate conclusions. The Statistics course will help you see statistics as part of every aspect of your daily life. How Will I Learn? We are waiting to hear the outcome from the government regarding coursework but, as well as normal class work and homework, we expect you will complete an extended statistical project, which will allow you to apply your statistical knowledge, skills and techniques in a specific context. You may conduct research by doing fieldwork – in museums or public libraries for example. You may also work in a group as well as by yourself. Of course, all work will be judged for your individual contribution. How Will I Be Assessed? Coursework, if it is included, will account for 25% of the final marks. The course then ends with formal written examination papers which will contribute 75% of the overall assessment marks. Will There Be Any Homework? Homework will be an integral part of this demanding course. What Do I Need for Separate Sciences and Statistics? You need to be good at Mathematics, and ideally be studying GCSE Mathematics at the Higher Tier level.
