Session 6B. Theoretical Models of Statistical Knowledge, Thinking, Reasoning and Learning

Session Organizer(s)

Maxine Pfannkuch (NZ)
Chris Wild (NZ)

Session Abstract

This session will involve presentations of theoretical models that have arisen out of research into students' cognitive development in statistics or through pedagogic development in statistics or through focussing on the discipline itself. Therefore statistics education researchers and practising statisticians are sought to present their work in this session. The aim is for each talk to draw on a theoretical model that has been developed from one of these starting points. A short discussion will follow the presentations on the similarities and differences in each of the models, how they might illuminate one another and what we can learn from them.
