The NRICH maths problem will get students into statistics without them necessarily needing to engage in detailed calculation.
Students are asked if a set of statistical statements sometimes, always or never true? If they are only sometimes true, can they give examples or conditions under which they are true and under which they are false. It will lead to a better intuitive grasp of statistics, which will inevitably lead to a better grasp of various statistical techniques. The questions are approximately listed in order of difficulty.
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.
