Topic Review: Thinking Quantitatively II – Statistics and Experimental Design
The Nuffield Advanced Biology Topic Reviews for students were an integral part of the Advanced Biological Science materials, but each could be read on its own. Thus, students could use them for their current work or to pursue personal interests.
In this Topic Review, six problems were selected to represent some of the most common examples of the applications of statistical ideas likely to be encountered by biologists.
• The need for statistical analysis
• The normal curve
• The means of samples
• Comparing sample means
• Comparing means of small samples
• The use of chi-squared
• Experimental design
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
