This workbook covers the stages of designing, conducting and analysing an experiment in order to answer a statistical question involving causality. Important aspects of experimental design are discussed, including the management of extra sources of variability. A report is produced, structured using the statistical enquiry cycle, in order to describe the experiment, discuss displays and measures, and communicate findings.
The concise notes and write-on exercises keep student work together in a compact format, providing a useful end-of-topic revision tool.
This workbook is ideal for use in the classroom or for homework, home study and revision.
