Statistics A-Level at Windsor High School and Sixth Form

Course description

Statistics is a stimulating subject for those who enjoy a structured process of problem solving and a logical way of thinking. Throughout the course you will

  • Develop an understanding of statistics and statistical processes in a way that promotes confidence and fosters enjoyment.
  • Develop your abilities to construct a logical statistical argument and recognise incorrect statistical reasoning.
  • Extend your range of statistical knowledge, skills and techniques, and use them in both structures and unstructured problems.
  • Recognise how a situation may be represented statistically and understand the relationship between ‘real world’ problems and statistical models, and how the later can be refined and improved.
  • Develop an awareness of the relevance of statistics to other fields of study, to the world of work and to society in general.
  • Take an increasing responsibility for your own learning and the evaluation of your own mathematical development.
