As part of a continued drive to develop a curriculum that is diverse and challenging, from 2014 onwards Year 9 students can develop their statistical skills by completing an Pearson Edexcel GCSE Statistics (Higher or Foundation). This can be run alongside the Level 2 Algebra course. The benefit, we feel, is that for any student to achieve their full mathematical potential they must be confident in this vital topic area. To this end, we have devoted part of year 9 to Statistics.
Attached is a course outline that is downloadable. It is an adapted version of the one published by Pearson/Edexcel.
Possible outcome may be include an opportunity to gain an additional GCSE qualification at the end of Year 9.
