Training teachers in statistical thinking – conference paper

In this paper I argue that to improve teachers’ statistical content and pedagogical content knowledge, teachers need to experience the game of statistics, build key statistical concepts related to transnumeration thinking, reasoning with statistical models, and consideration of variation, and understand how students develop their statistical reasoning. The implication of requiring teachers to have substantive and deep knowledge of statistics is discussed.
