Current situation and issue for effective use of statistical software in Japan
- Yoshinori Fujii (University of Miyazaki, Japan)
It is one of goals for teaching statistics to understand and perform statistical problem solving. We have to make the effective use of statistical software in order to achieve the goal. There are many software, for example TinkerPlots and Fathom are well-known. If we consider using software in almost all schools, it is preferable that the software is free of charge and operations are limited. Especially Japanese teachers/students have difficulty to use English software. Unfortunately there are not many software with using Japanese language and treating easily. We have made several software for school use and published them free of charge. We present the characteristics of them and some examples for use.
