Statistics education at school level
Statistics and hence statistics education are of vital importance to the whole of society and to all disciplines. The earliest introduction to statistical thinking occurs at the school level. Here a variety of techniques and concepts for data collection, handling and interpretation can be presented and explored, in harmony with concepts of chance. However the excitement of statistics and an appreciation of its utility can be sustained and enriched from perspectives beyond the school, and by an embracing of the challenges of engaging, empowering and intriguing young minds with the foundations of statistical thinking, and exhibiting its enormous power to harness and handle uncertainty.
