Hi all,

I have been given a task in my GCSE Statistics preparation to make a report on journey times.

I have to collect and process my own data.

Which methods of representation (calculations, graphs, etc.) could I use to achieve top marks?

The specification says the following for A/A*:

Histograms
Venn diagrams
Scatter diagram comparing lines of best fit with curves
Sensible curves of best fit including the range of applicability
Standard Deviation
Average seasonal effect
Binomial distribution
Normal distribution
Formal calculation of outliers


I am comfortable with working with all of them, but I don't understand which would be the best to represent my information on journey times?

My teacher said not to use all of them, since representing information on journey times would be very difficult using binomial distribution.


Please help me!

Thanks very much!
