Time series data

Investigating and modelling time series

Year 12

This video is the first which deals with time series for the Further Maths Units 3 and 4 course. An introduction to all the key terms is vital to be able to write a meaningful report relating to time series. Hence, I introduce cycles, seasonality, random fluctuations, outliers, structural changes, trends and much more. VCAA questions are also completed from past papers which relate directly to this thoery. There are 5 videos in this series.
