Programme Of Study For Key Stage 4 Mathematics

These are the statements, each one preceeded with the words "Pupils should be taught to:"

- infer properties of populations or distributions from a sample, whilst knowing the limitations of sampling
- interpret and construct tables and line graphs for time series data
- {construct and interpret diagrams for grouped discrete data and continuous data, ie, histograms with equal and unequal class intervals and cumulative frequency graphs, and know their appropriate use}
- interpret, analyse and compare the distributions of data sets from univariate empirical distributions through appropriate graphical representation involving discrete, continuous and grouped data, {including box plots} and appropriate measures of central tendency (including modal class) and spread {including quartiles and inter-quartile range}
- apply statistics to describe a population
- use and interpret scatter graphs of bivariate data; recognise correlation 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.

Statements in curly brackets {} are additional mathematical content to be taught to more highly attaining pupils.
