Teaching Statistics

Teaching Statistics is aimed at teachers and students aged 9-19 who use statistics in their work. The emphasis is on teaching the subject and addressing problems which arise in the classroom. The journal seeks to support not only specialist statistics teachers but also those in other disciplines, such as economics, biology and geography, who make widespread use of statistics in their teaching.

Teaching Statistics seeks to inform, enlighten, stimulate, correct, entertain and encourage. Contributions should be light and readable. Formal mathematics should be kept to a minimum.

Key Features:

  • Classroom Notes - shorter items containing good ideas worth sharing
  • Computing Corner - new developments and ideas in statistical software
  • Curriculum Matters - addressing curriculum issues nationally and internationally
  • Data Bank - interesting data sets and what to do with them
  • Historical Perspective - the lives of statisticians and history of statistics
  • Project Parade - reporting on a successful project or suggesting ideas
  • Practical Activities - ideas for 'hands-on' classroom practicals in statistics
  • Research Report - accessible reports on research in statistical education
  • Standard Errors - exposing and correcting common 'howlers'
