Understanding Statistics and Statistics Education: A Chinese Perspective
Shi, Ning-Zhong; He, Xuming; Tao, Jian
Journal of Statistics Education, v17 n3 Nov 2009
In recent years, statistics education in China has made great strides. However, there still exists a fairly large gap with the advanced levels of statistics education in more developed countries. In this paper, we identify some existing problems in statistics education in Chinese schools and make some proposals as to how they may be overcome. We hope that our study can benefit the development of statistics education in China, and encourage statistics educators and researchers in other countries to help address these important issues in China and possibly in other developing countries.
