2.11, 3.12 Statistical Reports from around the Pacific – Emma Mawby (Statistics NZ)

Emma Mawby is a Senior Analyst in the Statistical Education team at Statistics New Zealand.
She has worked a teacher of Mathematics and Statistics in the UK and New Zealand. She has also delivered Statistics courses to adult learners in the Pacific. Emma’s workshop looked at where can data take you.

This workshop looked at statistically based reports from around the Pacific. It includes activities which meet some of the requirements of the “Statistical Literacy” part of the curriculum at Level 4 and beyond. The aim of these activities is to encourage students to evaluate statistically based reports whilst developing skills of justification and insight.

The resources used in the workshop are adapted from material prepared and delivered by Statistics New Zealand for learners in Samoa, Fiji and Cook Islands, who were asked to demonstrate Statistical Literacy in their second language.
