Statistics education at the school level
In many countries throughout the world Statistics, often consisting of two strands with names such as Chance and Data, has increasingly become a more significant component of the school mathematics curriculum. Many countries include statistics benchmarks or statistics learning goals in their national curriculum or standards documents for all levels of school mathematics. In addition, the relatively recent introduction of innovative technology can have an impact on the ways that data handling and statistics are taught at the school level. This topic will focus on issues related to statistics, particularly data investigations and data handling in schools, including-innovative teaching strategies at various levels, assessment issues at the school level, developments and uses of technology to teach statistics in the schools, and research on teaching statistics at the school level.
