Building the Numeracy Skills of Undergraduate and Elementary School Students
Boger, Pam
Journal of Statistics Education, v13 n3 Nov 2005
This paper describes a project with the goal of exposing both elementary school and undergraduate students to the concepts associated with the experimental method, from the formulation of a researchable question to the analysis and interpretation of the results. Under the guidance of their university mentors, fourth and fifth grade students formulated a research question, designed an experiment to answer that inquiry, recorded the appropriate measurements, calculated the necessary statistics, created visual displays of their results, and interpreted their findings at a student-centered Numeracy Conference.
