# Data Analysis

This collection of Nuffield Maths resources explores Data Analysis. The demand is roughly equivalent to that in GCE A level.

They include slide shows to introduce the topics, student sheets and teacher notes, as well as other relevant resources.

The teachers' notes start with a short overview of the activity, who and what it is designed for, and lists the necessary resources. The student sheets have background information where needed, and tasks for the students to work and reflect on. Extensions and solutions are included in the teachers' notes.

The collection contains the following resources:

HE applications Students draw statistical diagrams and calculate statistical measures, then write a short report summarising their findings.

Anthropometric data Students investigate relationships between anthropometric variables and write a report on their findings. This may include the use of scatter diagrams, lines of best fit, regression lines, and correlation coefficients.

DISCUSS regression and correlation  Students use an online statistics module to learn about regression and correlation, with guidance from our student sheets and teacher notes.

Successful HE applicants - significance tests on proportions to test hypotheses about successful applicants to higher education.

Parking permits   Students learn about collecting data by stratified sampling and designing a questionnaire.

Pay rates for men and women    Students are shown how to draw and format cumulative frequency graphs in Excel.

Stature  Students use simulated stature data for men and women in eight countries to draw histograms and look for general results.
