This is a session of Topic 6: Innovation and reform in teaching probability within statistics

(Tuesday 15th, 13:45-15:15)

Interdisciplinarity and innovation



This session wants to study how teaching probability with statistics might be developed through interdisciplinary approaches. Interdisciplinarity is understood as the development of two of more disciplines, when the development of one discipline contributes to the development of the other one(s) (Fourez & Larochelle, 2003, Apprivoiser l'épistémologie, Bruxelles: De Boeck). In this sense, it is not enough to refer to the specific knowledge to statistics when teaching probability. With respect to the theme of our topic, we are interested to know how to teach probability and statistics in an interdisciplinary and innovative way.
