(Could you please get back to me asap because i have an interim deadline for next week (monday 3rd) to get my plan done)
im doing my GCSE Maths statistics coursework (Edexcel) on Mayfield High School Data.
For children in KS3 and KS4, i have the following data:
Month of birth
Favourite type of music
Favourite TV programme
Average number of hours TV watched per week
Distance Between Home and School
Means of travel to school
No of siblings
No of pets
KS2 Results English
I was wondering if you could tell me which line of investigation would be the best in terms of allowing me to show the most skills. I was considering doin height and weight or some similar continuous data. How would i go about writing an 'integrated' detailed hypothesis and what would i need to include in my plan and the project (especially in terms of statistical skills i.e. histograms etc to score highly?
What is meant by the term 'regression analysis' and what is the formula i need to carry it out?
Finally, are there any resources/sites which could help me with this coursework?
Thank you so much for your help.
ive just started my GCSE statistics coursework. im at a grammer school and am doing higher tier maths. for my statistics coursework, we are provided with all the figures and info but i have to do sampling and only use a small amount of the data.
i want to do height against weight but how do i do the sampling? also am i meant to use a range of graphs?
I am REALLY stuck on ideas for my GCSE statistics coursework task. My teacher gave us a sheet of random ideas and said we can use primary or secondary data, but I dont really understand!
I am not at all sure where to begin looking for data or what sort of data I should be looking for. I do not understand what we will have to do with the data either once we have found it.
I hope you can help me and suggest ideas for my coursework or useful websites to find ideas.
I sent in my GCSE Statistics Coursework questionnaire to be marked and had the following reply back:
Grade Awarded: C
This questionnaire will give you 3 factors affecting birth weight - drinking, smoking and days early or late.
3 factors would normally be enough but you must be careful as two of your questions only have yes or no answers. To use this in an analysis is then difficult. Some examples of problems are how can you work out the mean average of yes and no answers? How would you plot a scatter diagram, cumulative frequency graph or any other diagram that allows you to gain at least a C grade?
If you are taking the foundation tier this questionnaire is probably sufficient but for any grade higher than a D/E you will need more in your questionnaire. Think about the statistics techniques you have been taught. Most of them rely on you having numerical data. The information you need to collect needs to be numerical so you have the skills to analyse it.
If you can't think of a way of writing more questions on your current topic you may need to think of a new topic. You could use some secondary data (information someone else has collected) from a website or library on a topic that interests you.
Let me know if you need any more advice.
Note from system: no grade assigned, defaulted to C grade.
Here is my questionnaire, please could you give me some advice about what extra I could do to it...

i am doing my statistics coursework and have the hypothesis of 'year 11 are better at estimating lengths and angles than year 7' i have collected all of my data and have used stratified and random sampling and then used a stem and leaf diagram which helped me with my class boundaries and then i drew my box and whisker plots, my cummulative frquency diagrams and my histograms. i am now on my interpretation and am slightly stuck. i was just wondering what tips you could give me for this section, as i'm not sure what examiners would be looking for.
I will be in year eleven when I go back to school this week and I am totally stuck on my statistics coursework. We only started statistics at the very end of last year and I don't feel as though I know enough to be able to do this coursework. There doesn't seem to be anything on the internet that will help me. What should I do?
