Education of the grammar of science for sciences and society



The objective of statistics education is not to make students understand application or theory of statistical methods but to give students the competence to advance modelling and decision making based on the grammar of science, which is a standard process necessary to acquire new knowledge or to achieve higher quality decision making. The author will illustrate simple cases for statistics education to clarify roles of different grammars of science both for sciences and societies.
