The Storm of the Century! Promoting Student Enthusiasm for Applied Statistics
Fawcett, Lee; Newman, Keith
Teaching Statistics: An International Journal for Teachers, v39 n1 p2-13 Spr 2017
This article describes a hands-on activity that has been used with students aged 12-18 years to promote the study of Statistics. We believe there is evidence to suggest an increase in student enthusiasm for Statistics at school, within the Mathematics curriculum, but also within other subjects such as Geography. We also believe that the use of such activities has resulted in some students giving more serious thought to studying Statistics at University. The activity described here is supported with a web-based application to allow younger or less experienced students to engage with the material.
