## Description

A-Level Maths: Statistics (Year 2) is a course for anyone studying A-Level Maths:

This course covers everything in the statistics component of maths A-Level 2nd year content, and builds on the content covered in my first year course A-Level Maths: Statistics (Year 1 / AS). The course is suitable for all major exam boards, including Edexcel, OCR, AQA and MEI. It is also a great introduction to statistics for anyone interested in getting started.

The main sections of the course are:

• Correlation – we will learn how to measure correlation and use this to test whether two variables are correlated. This is a hugely important skill used in science, economics, business and all fields that need to test ideas statistically.
• Regression – we will learn how to calculate equations of regression lines (lines of best fit), learn how to use these, and explore their limitations. We also look at regression for non-linear data, including exponential and polynomial models.
• Conditional Probability – we look at a version of Bayes’ theorem that will allow us to explore conditional probability problems. This will be applied to Venn diagrams, tree diagrams, binomial distributions and the normal distribution.
• The Normal Distribution – we learn what it is, how to use it, and explore a large range of advanced techniques for using it, including its connections with the binomial distribution and conditional probability.

What you get in this course:

Videos: Watch as I explain each topic, introducing all the key ideas, and then go through a range of different examples, covering all the important ideas in each. In these videos I also point out the most common misconceptions and errors so that you can avoid them.

Quizzes: Each sub-section is followed by a short quiz for you to test your understanding of the content just covered. Most of the questions in the quizzes are taken from real A-Level past papers. Feel free to ask for help if you get stuck on these!

Worksheets: At the end of each chapter I have made a collection of different questions taken from real A-Level past papers for you to put it all together and try for yourself. At the bottom of each worksheet is a full mark-scheme so you can see how you have done.

I really hope you enjoy this course!
