GCSE Maths Revision List – Statistics Foundation


1. Infer properties of populations or distributions from a sample, whilst knowing the limitations of sampling

2. Interpret and construct:

  • tables, charts and diagrams, including frequency tables
  • bar charts, pie charts and pictograms for categorical data
  • vertical line charts for ungrouped discrete numerical data,
  • tables and line graphs for time series data and know their appropriate use

3. Interpret, analyse and compare the distributions of data sets from univariate empirical distributions through:

  • appropriate graphical representation involving discrete, continuous and grouped data
  • appropriate measures of central tendency (median, mean, mode and modal class) and spread (range, including consideration of outliers)

4. Apply statistics to describe a population

5. Scatter graphs

  • use and interpret scatter graphs for two variables
  • recognise correlation (positive, negative, no) and know that it does not indicate causation
  • draw estimated lines of best fit; make predictions
  • interpolate and extrapolate apparent trends whilst knowing the dangers of so doing
