Abstract

A data-driven, statistical thinking-driven, and problem-solving-driven method for teaching descriptive statistics in introductory statistics is introduced. It emphasizes collecting different types of real data first, and then visualizing data based on the characteristics of the data combined with statistical thinking, finding summarized information by reading data distribution, and finally learning problem-solving skills with understandable math formulas.
