Maths Unit: Statistical Investigations

Description

This Year 6 unit helps students develop their statistical investigation skills by walking them through the necessary stages to plan, conduct and analyse a statistical investigation and then communicate their findings.

The unit does rely on familiarity with data and statistical terms, so this unit should follow our other data and statistics units for Year 6.
