Statistical Application (Probability)

The Price of Collecting

Year 12 Unit 4



Brief Description:

This practical application allows students to demonstrate their understanding, problem solving ability and reasoning in the context of performing simulation experiments to determine the real cost of collecting shopping rewards. Students will need to use the Statistical Investigation Process throughout this assessment.*
