Resources for teaching statistics: Classroom Activities

1.10, Level 4, Level 5 How far until it stops?

Dr Sarah Howell & Michelle Freeman (Te Aho o Te Kura Pounamu) presented resources for exploring  an authentic and relevant context for teaching statistics. For students this context is best understood in both theory and practice!

This hands-on workshop gave teachers a chance to experience for themselves the stages of the PPDAC enquiry cycle within an authentic, engaging, relevant and important context of vehicle and road safety. Teachers posed a question, analysed data, related it to the context and formed a conclusion. This workshop was intended for teachers wanting to build their understanding about carrying out statistical investigations using the PPDAC cycle and gives a context and resources to take back to school. This material is primarily aimed at teachers of Years 9-11 (although it may be useful for Years 7-8 teachers as well).
