GCSE Maths Statistics Coursework

Description of task

I will be investigating data from Mayfield High School. There are 1182 students at Mayfield and I have 13 categories of data on each. I will be investigating the relationship between height and weight, I expect a graph of weight and height to show positive correlation.


I am getting my data from the school website; this will not be completely reliable as it is a secondary source. To get a sample of my data I will tell the spreadsheet to assign a random number to each set of data and then display the data in order of these numbers, I will then chose the top 50 rows of data as my sample. I have chosen this method because it is completely random and easy to do. I will avoid choosing a biased sample by randomising the order of the data again if the sample appears to be biased.

Liver inferior markings showing right/left lobe vs. vascular divisions [ID 114]

There's a Hepatic "H" on inferior of liver. One vertical stick of the H is the dividing line for anatomical

right/left lobe and the other vertical stick is the divider for vascular halves. Stick that divides the liver into

vascular halves is the one with vena cava impression (since vena cava carries blood, it's fortunate that it's

the divider for blood halves).
