## Course Overview

This course is half internally, half externally assessed. There are several alternative options that may not be done in class so there is the possibility to work on a topic by your self outside of the class and get assessed at a convenient time but it requires conscientious work.

Prerequisites vary depending on the topic. The Probability topics require Algebra knowledge. Knowledge of the equations of straight-line graphs is important for the other options. Level 1 AS 91037 Chance and Data would be really helpful and in level 2, AS 91264 Statistical inference, AS91267 Probability, AS91035 Multivariate data, AS91036 Bivariate data will help improve Level 3 grades.
