This course is structured around the creation and completion of a real-life data analysis project that allows participants to apply knowledge and skills from other mathematical strands. Key concepts such as data collection, graphical representations of data and measures of center are highlighted.
Participants will be able to:
• Design an investigation to address a question and consider how data-collection methods affect the nature of the data set
• Use measures of center, especially the median and understand what each does and does not indicate about a data set
• Propose and justify conclusions and predictions that are based on data
