Teaching practice of “analysis of data” using computer games — team making with Quality Control problem solving method


Tomomi Masuda (Japan)


The new Japanese curriculum of mathematics for high schools will be implemented, and University entrance examination will change in 2020. In particular, Statistics education has been strongly emphasized toward this knowledge-based society, and ability of expression in mathematical way is one of the new demands. This paper illustrates the lesson practice in high school. The theme of the lesson is analyzing data of football players of “Winning eleven” which is the title of TV game. They have tried to make strong team through choosing some players from multi-variate data. I will demonstrate how to realize these lessons and student’s activities in those lessons, and derive some implications for the future of statistics education in Japan.
