Statistics in Social Context: Using Issues of Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals and Transsexuals in Teaching Statistics.
Transformations: Journal of Inclusive Scholarship, v13 n2 p27-45 Fall 2002
Describes a "criticalmathematics" approach to teaching statistics that uses gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transsexual issues and statistics about them as teaching examples. The inclusions of these social issues gives the analysis of statistical data more relevance and encourages students to question, understand, and confront information more readily. (SLD)
