Overview

Teaching Statistical Concepts by Anne Hawkins, Flavia Jolliffe, Leslie Glickman

There is growing recognition that statistics should be part of the core curriculum for the compulsory schooling of all children, leading to a now urgent need for teachers to be trained in both statistical content and appropriate teaching methods. This book lays the foundation for teacher's responses to these changes, exploring how best to teach those applied skills which are now seen to be a more relevant part of the content of statistical courses.
