Description

Probability and statistics is one of the strands of the Project Maths course in the Irish curriculum. Statistics are used in real life to make sense of the information around us and how it affects us. Although it is based on Irish lessons, anyone who wants to revise high-school stats and probability can take this course.

Statistics looks at the data handling cycle and analysis of the data collected. This involves posing a question, collecting data on that question, presenting that data, analysing the data (using measures of spread and centre) and interpreting the results. In answering questions, it is essential that you can contextualise and justify your findings.

Probability is concerned with the likelihood of something happening. The information can be used to make informed decisions or to infer the fairness of an event. It can be evaluated using a diagram or a rule-based approach. This strand attempts to merge the mathematical aspects of probability and statistics with their real-life applications. It is an interesting topic that is very accessible to all students, not just those undertaking the Junior Certificate.
