## Analysing data (M248) & Practical modern statistics (M249)

• ### Analysing data (M248)

• M248 will assume that you can answer most of the questions in this quiz correctly before you start studying it.

• Links to the OU's main site.

• #### Prior knowledge

Before taking M248, you should be confident in
• algebra
• functions, including the logarithmic and exponential functions
In additional you will be need to use differential and integration techniques within the module, but the module includes some revision on this.

You could gain these skills for, example, from prior study of Essential Mathematics 1 (MST124).

You can check your skills using the Are You Ready For quiz above
• Based on the module content, but presented in a different format.

• ### Practical modern statistics (M249)

You can attempt the quiz as many times as you like and the questions will usually be different each time. You do not have to complete all the questions in one session.

If you do not have an Open University computer username (OUCU), you will be asked to create one when starting this quiz.

You could gain these skills for, example, from prior study of Essential Mathematics 1 (MST124).

In additional you will need to be familiar with statistical concepts such as
• distributions
• correlation
• summary measures
• hypothesis testing.
These are covered in Analysing Data (M248). If you are taking M248 at the same time as M249 you will be introduced to these concepts in due course.
