Session 2C. Research on Teaching Statistics at the School Level

Session Organizer(s)

Pat Thompson (USA)

Session Abstract

Papers in this session will focus on various aspects of research of teaching statistics at the school level. Although there are many classroom innovations that will be discussed at ICOTS-6, as well as research on students' understanding, this particular session is designed to combine research and classroom experiences under the general heading of "teaching". Innovations in this area may be associated with curriculum reform, teaching methodology, teacher understanding, applying research outcomes, supplementing teaching with technology, or emphasis on particular topics.

The significance of this session will be based on the demonstrated links between these aspects of teaching in the classroom and the research that establishes their effectiveness. Participants will be expected to expound on their research methodology as appropriate for the results reported. The outcomes to be canvassed are associated with primary, middle, secondary, and senior secondary classrooms.
