**Total of 5 Credits - In****ternally Assessed**

This book contains notes, questions and practice investigations for the **Experimental Probability Investigation for 1.1 Statistical Enquiry Process**. An Experimental Probability Investigation is one of the four options for the assessment of this standard, the other options are : Relationship Investigation, Time Series Investigation and Comparison Investigation. This standard is internally assessed and is worth 5 credits.

Students are able to and encouraged to use appropriate technology, such as graphing calculators/software in their learning and assessment for this standard.

In this workbook students will find **clear explanations** and **detailed worked examples** showing the step-by-step processes that will be needed to solve each type of problem, these are followed by a large number of practice **exercises **and** problems **of increasing difficulty. At the end of the workbook there is are **Practice Investigations**. 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 by this Resource Include** :

**Probability from Experiments **
**Organising Data **
**Data Display **
**Using Technology **
**Theoretical Probability **
**Expectation**
**Experimental Problem, Plan and Data **
**Theoretical Comparisons **
**Form a Conclusion **
**Example Investigation **
**Practice Investigations **

The Sigma Workbook **'AS 1.1 Experimental Probability Investigation' **is best bought before the standard is taught at school and used throughout this time 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 1.1.

Once completed, **'AS 1.1 Experimental Probability Investigation' **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 mathematics course.
