Statistics has been advocated as a way for students to make sense of the world. However, statistics instructions in schools mainly focus on number and formulas, thus fail to serve the aforementioned purpose. Existing research have proposed various perspectives on effective statistics instructions in the classroom, as well as the role of lesson study in the innovation of teaching and learning. To contribute to this area of study, we developed a statistics lesson for secondary school through Lesson Study, featuring the use of real-life data and cross-border collaboration. In this study, 32 students each in Indonesia and Thailand deduced the link between coal consumption and CO2 emission using data from APEC database. This paper describes the lesson from the perspective of Indonesia.
