Volume 3 of these presentations covers Probability and Statistics in the A level module S1. The presentations make extensive use of diagrams to illustrate the theory and provide a perfect framework for your teaching, illustrating all the key concepts with worked examples. (Volumes 1, 2 and 4, covering the Core Modules C1, C2, C3 and C4 and Mechanics M1 are also available.)
All you need is a Data Projector or Interactive Whiteboard and a computer running Microsoft Powerpoint (Office 2002 or later).

How to navigate through the course and use these Powerpoint files:
There are 3 ways to start a presentation:
If the presentation isn’t open, from Powerpoint select File, Open and navigate to the file required. Right mouse click and select Open. Then select File and Print. Under print range choose slides and enter the numbers of the white slides. Under print what, select handouts. The default is for 6 slides per page. If larger images are required, select slides (instead of handouts) to get a full page image of each slide. Under color/greyscale, select Pure black and white.
The files are “read only” but can be saved under a new name and then altered as you wish. The colours have been chosen to be clear in most lighting conditions but can be tweaked if necessary. Open a file, select view and view master and slide master. Right click and choose background, click on the colour arrow and choose more colours. Try a standard colour (or custom colour) near to the one used. Alterations can also be made to the slide contents. Microsoft equation editor has been used for the equations. You may need to ungroup (on the draw menu) in order to make alterations and re-animate the slides after alterations.
We are aware of
a formatting problem, acknowledged by Microsoft, that arises when the presentations
are used on computers running under Microsoft Vista. Vista-friendly versions
of the files are now available from Chartwell-Yorke upon request.
Alternatively, ifusers wish to make corrections themselves they need to do the following:
· Using the normal (edit) mode of Powerpoint, select the text box containing the text or numbers which spill over to the next line and, holding the right hand edge of the box, drag it slightly to the right. The lower text will then jump up to the correct place.

"This is the Whiteboard Maths of A Level. It is a series of PowerPoint
files that covers the whole of the A Level course. Volume 1 is A/S, Volume
2 is A2, and Volume 3 is Statistics. The coverage and detail are extremely
impressive, and once again if you are looking to introduce some ICT into A
Level teaching, then there is no better single package around. But once again,
be warned - each slide contains so much detail that it can be overwhelming
for students if they are merely clicked through."
