Sigma Stats Workbook 'AS 1.13 Elements of Chance' is a write-on student resource covering the statistics students must understand to gain AchievedMerit, or Excellence in the internally assessed Achievement Standard 1.13 – 'Investigate a situation involving elements of chance' (AS 91038).

In this workbook students will find clear explanations and detailed worked examples showing what is required at each step in an investigation involving experimental probability. At the end of the workbook there is an Achievement Standard Test: An investigation involving elements of chance. 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 :
  • Probability from Experiments     
  • Organising the Data   
  • Data Display     
  • Using Technology     
  • Theoretical Probability     
  • Expectation
  • Define the Experimental Problem   
  • Plan the Experiment
  • Display the Experimental Data
  • Discuss the Experimental Data
  • Theoretical Comparisons
  • Form a Conclusion
  • Practice Investigations
  • Achievement Standard Test        

The Sigma Stats Workbook 'AS 1.13 Elements of Chance' 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 1.13.

Once completed, 'AS 1.13 Elements of Chance' 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 statistical course.
