How is rate expressed?
Per unit of time usually min-1 or s-1
1 of 7
How is percentage change calculated?
Change/initial value x 100
2 of 7
What is the advantage of calculation percentage change?
This allows comparison and takes into account different starting values.
3 of 7
How do you calculate ratios?
Divide first value by second. e.g mass/length
4 of 7
How do you calculate the mean of a sample?
Add up all the values and divide by the number in the sample.
5 of 7
What is the standard deviation of a sample?
The standard deviation shows the spread about the mean.
6 of 7
Why do you calculate the standard deviation?
the greater the standard deviation the greater the variation in results. Overlap of standard deviations indicates that the means may not be significantly different.
