Sigma Stats Workbook 'AS 1.10 Multivariate Data’ is a write-on student resource covering the statistics students must understand to gain Achieved, Merit, or Excellence in the internally assessed Achievement Standard 1.10 – 'Investigate a given multivariate data set using the statistical enquiry cycle’ (AS 91035).
In this workbook students will find clear explanations and detailed worked examples showing what is required at each step of the statistical enquiry cycle. At the end of the workbook there is an Achievement Standard Test: a statistical investigation using a given set of multivariate data. Candidates should use this to evaluate their strengths and weaknesses before the internal assessment.
A full set of answers is included, which acts as a guide to structuring quality answers. An abbreviated version of the Achievement Criteria and Explanatory Notes of the Achievement Standard itself complete the resource.
Topics Covered in this Workbook Include :
- Define the Problem
- Plan the Investigation
- Data Display
- Measures of Centre and Spread
- Gathering Evidence
- Box-and-Whisker Plots
- Comparing Samples
- Statistical Inference
- Forming a Conclusion
- Statistical Vocabulary
- Two Investigations with Given Data Sets
- Achievement Standard Test
The Sigma Workbook 'AS 1.10 Multivariate Data' is best bought before the standard is taught at school and used throughout the topic as a classroom and homework resource. Alternatively, the workbook would make an excellent independent study resource in the lead-up to the internal assessment of Achievement Standard 1.10.
Once completed, 'AS 1.10 Multivariate Data' provides a useful set of revision notes at assessment time. It can be kept as a reference book if students intend taking a Year 12 statistics course.
