L3MAS

Mathematics with Statistics Level 3

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr S. Knowles

The Level 3 Mathematics with Statistics course teaches students the skills to collect, process, display and analyse data. Probability concepts and distributions are also covered. These skills prepare our students for the quantitative aspects of Science, Social Science, Business, or any field where statistical analysis and making sense of data is important. 

The use of technology to explore and analyse data is a focus of this course which reflects the changing world of data analysis. Students will use computer based analytical skills to conduct statistical investigations and draw conclusions from raw data.

A combination of internal and external achievement standards, the topics in this course include Probability Concepts, Probability Distributions, Inference Investigations, Bivariate Data Investigations and Linear Programming.

L3MAS is recommended for students who successfully completed the L2MAS course. As this course requires writing statistical reports, a good level of English is beneficial.

Scholarship Statistics will be made available to students who performed to a high standard in Level 2 Mathematics and are willing to commit to the study program.
