## Statistics (M343, M347, M348)

• ### Applications of probability (M343)

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.

Please note that your activity on the quiz can be viewed by relevant Open University staff and may be used to help support your study planning, either directly or indirectly. A short overview of our data retention policy can be found on the Data protection and privacy notice page.

• Links to the OU's main site.

• #### Prior knowledge

Before taking M343, you should confident in
• algebra
• functions, including the logarithmic and exponential functions
• matrices
• differentiation
• integration
• differential equations
• hypothesis testing
• basic probability
• probability distributions
You could gain these skills for, example, from prior study of Essential Mathematics 1 (MST124) or Essential Mathematics 2 (MST125), and Analysing Data (M248).
