National Statistics Olympiad - 2015
The Fourth National Olympiad Competition in Statistics
Institute of Applied Statistics, Sri Lanka is organizing a National Olympiad Competition in Statistics for the 4th time in Sri Lanka in 2015. The competition was started in 2012 and thereafter the competition is organized annually as there is an urgent need to encourage more young students to enter into this field.
We expect the participants of this Olympiad to develop a sound knowledge in statistics and at the end they will be the persons who are able to get most appropriate decisions not only for the development of the country but also for their individual or personal development.
The Institute of Applied Statistics, Sri Lanka (IASSL) is launching several new programmes to cultivate interest and curiosity among the youngsters. One such programme is the National Statistics Olympiad . The objective of conducting a Statistics Olympiad is to generate more interest among the youth in the field of Statistics and make the public know about what the field of statistics is and its multi-disciplinary relevance to day to day life.
Further, Statisticians have a role to play in almost all fields such as mathematics, natural sciences, medicine, social sciences, Industrial fields, engineering, computer science etc. etc. They should be able to collect and analyze data to make meaningful and most useful decisions. Hence the knowledge of statistics is of prime importance to understand problems and get useful information to produce valid solutions.
Prizes (medals and certificates) will be awarded to students those who perform well in the examination.
The competition is for any school student those who are interested in Statistics and in the age of 14 – 20 years. The examination will be held under two age categories:
- Junior – Grade 9, 10 & 11
