A data set gives students the context they need to carry out a meaningful statistical enquiry cycle. Student can then make their own conclusions about vital issues of vehicle safety.
In this statistics unit, students use the Problem, Plan, Data, Analysis and Conclusion (PPDAC) enquiry cycle to carry out a comparative investigation of stopping distances under different conditions.
Lesson plans and student workbook guide teachers and students through the steps of the statistical enquiry cycle.
Students will develop their own understanding of the importance of following distances which suit driving conditions.
