Statistics in MEI Further Maths

Stella Dudzic

13:45 - 14:45 Saturday 1st July

A level Mathematics / Further Mathematics OCR(MEI) and Use of technology in teaching mathematics

We shall look at simulation of distributions, using a spreadsheet, in statistics. It's a powerful technique in its own right and a topic in MEI Further Mathematics. It can also be used as a teaching tool in Maths and Further Maths, including when working with the large data set. We shall also look at using GeoGebra, and perhaps other software, to produce confidence intervals.

Aimed at anyone interested in learning about this Further Maths topic, or considering teaching statistics units in the new MEI specification.

It would be helpful for delegates to bring a laptop with Excel and GeoGebra.

Assumed knowledge

This session is appropriate for those who are confident in the topics listed in the session description and who have ideally taught these topics.
