Mathematics with Statistics Level 2

L2MAS
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr S. Knowles

Recommended Prior Learning

A minimum of 15 credits from L1MAT with an achieved or better in AS1.10 or AS1.11


The Level 2 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, Designing a Questionnaire, Carrying out a Statistical Experiment, Inference, and running a statistical simulation.

L2MAS is recommended for students who enjoyed the Statistics components of the L1MAT course and who have a reasonable level of writing ability given the literacy demands of the report writing in this course.
