GCSE Statistics Revision

Right, here's a list (in no particular order) of stuff you need to do.
Will put some more links here if I have time.

basically the plan is to revise Crude&Standardised rates on Monday, generaly revision on tues and weds. Anything else you want me to go over, you can leave me a comment here.

To get a decent grade in GCSE Statistics you need to be able to:
  • Know difference between Qualitative, Quantitative, Continuous&Discrete, Primary&Secondary Data
  • Use and know advantages/disadvantages of different types of sampling
  • Know how to design and carry out a questionnaire
  • Draw and interpret pictograms
  • Draw and interpret dual and composite bar charts
  • Draw and interpret Chloropleth maps
  • Draw and interpret Line Graphs, frequency polygons
  • Draw and interpret pie charts and comparative pie charts
  • Calculate mean.mode,median of listed or tabulated data
  • Calculate a weighted mean, and a geometric mean
  • Know the difference between a sample and population
  • Draw and interpret control charts
  • Find the interquartile range and semi interquartile range
  • Calculate deciles and percetages
  • Use cumulative frequency to find the median
  • Calculate standard deviation
  • Read two way tables
  • Draw and interpret stem&leaf diags
  • Draw population pyramids
  • Calculate probabilities
  • Use conditional probability
  • Calculate probability using relative frequency
  • Draw a histogram
  • Calculate mode from a histogram
  • Interpret the skew of a histogram
  • Draw and read box and whisker diagrams and interpret shape of distribution
  • Recognise the normal curve
  • Calculate a standardised score
  • Find percentage/relative error in calculations
  • Use upper and lower bounds
  • Spot misleading graphs
  • Draw and interpret time series graphs
  • Calculate moving averages
  • Use index numbers
  • Calculate crude and standardised birth/death/anything rates
  • Use probability tree diagrams
  • Use factorial notation
  • Calculate number of arrangement of n objects
  • Find arrangements with restrictions
  • Use selections or combinations
  • Use the binomial distribution probability model
  • Draw and interpret scatter diagrams
  • Work out the equation of the line of best fit
  • Calculate spearman's rank
thats all I can think of for now!
