Statistical analysis: Year 10 – planning tool

This planning resource for Year 10 is for the topic of Statistical analysis. Students are competent with comparing data distributions and are fluent with the relevant mathematical vocabulary. Extend students to work with other data displays, such as box plots, to represent continuous numerical variables. Review the distinction between continuous and discrete numerical data, referring to continuous data as 'measured' rather than 'counted'.
