Jonsdottir, Anna H.; Lentin, Jamie; Calian, Violeta; Hafsteinsson, Eggert K.; Stefansson, Gunnar – Teaching Statistics: An International Journal for Teachers, 2021
The tutor-web is an open-source learning environment designed to be used for teaching mathematics and statistics. The system offers thousands of exercises at high school and university level, and has been used for a decade to teach introductory statistics courses with good results. A new component has recently been added to the tutor-web so that…

Paolino, Jon-Paul – Teaching Statistics: An International Journal for Teachers, 2021
This paper presents a novel method for introductory teaching of the sample linear correlation coefficient from a bivariate dataset. Linear correlation is typically included in curriculums at the secondary and introductory tertiary levels of education. The method discussed herein can be used by educators in elementary courses at either of these…

Eisenhauer, Joseph G. – Teaching Statistics: An International Journal for Teachers, 2021
Statistical methods are increasingly being used to integrate findings from the ever-expanding universe of empirical research. Meta-analysis encompasses various techniques for synthesizing summary statistics, and mega-analysis pools raw data across studies. This paper offers an introduction to meta-analysis and mega-analysis that complements the…

Hadfield, KimberLeigh Felix – Teaching Statistics: An International Journal for Teachers, 2021
Undergraduate students tend to struggle with probability in their introductory statistics course. Probability problem solving requires several steps. First, students must make sense of the probability scenario, then determine the appropriate probability rules, and finally, execute the procedures to solve the problem. With no previous exposure to…

Delport, Danri H. – Teaching Statistics: An International Journal for Teachers, 2021
It is said that a picture is worth a thousand words, but what about graphs? Although graphs have the potential to bring data to life, numerous studies show that learners struggle with graphical comprehension. Furthermore, many textbook examples on graphs are boring and appear meaningless to students. Students want to know more about something…

Hourigan, Mairéad; Leavy, Aisling M. – Teaching Statistics: An International Journal for Teachers, 2021
The association or relationship between two variables, also known as covariation, has been identified as one of the fundamental statistical concepts. This article details a statistical investigation that was used to informally introduce Grade 6 students to this concept.

Lilly, Bryan; Miller, Andrew J. – Teaching Statistics: An International Journal for Teachers, 2021
This paper presents a dynamic Excel visual. The visual has three graphs that are all driven by the same data, so students can see how changes (via Slider controls) in data appear on a univariate graph, a bivariate graph, and a graph that shows a ratio of two variables on one axis. The visual has macros that let a statistics teacher reveal parts of…

Renelle, Amy; Budgett, Stephanie; Jones, Rhys – Teaching Statistics: An International Journal for Teachers, 2021
Everyone, including teachers, is prone to randomness misconceptions. In this article, we investigate the perceptions of randomness held by New Zealand secondary school teachers. The responses to a question asked in an online, anonymous questionnaire sent to New Zealand teachers will be explored. One question asked participants to create a sequence…

Findley, Kelly; Whitacre, Ian; Atabas, Sebnem – Teaching Statistics: An International Journal for Teachers, 2021
Providing opportunities for students to express ideas in their own words is key to promoting authentic disciplinary engagement and robust conceptual understanding. In this article, we discuss our experiences and observations related to students' informal vocabulary in the context of a middle school probability unit. We noticed that students'…

Sarkar, Jyotirmoy; Rashid, Mamunur – Teaching Statistics: An International Journal for Teachers, 2021
While a dot plot depicts data on a quantitative variable without distortion, a boxplot shows only the five-number summary. For large data, to aid in counting, we propose an IVY plot as a companion to a dot plot. Also, for large data, if the variable is approximately normally distributed, as a companion to a boxplot, we propose a Gaussian interval…

Lasser, Jana; Manik, Debsankha; Silbersdorff, Alexander; Säfken, Benjamin; Kneib, Thomas – Teaching Statistics: An International Journal for Teachers, 2021
Data and its applications are increasingly ubiquitous in the rapidly digitizing world and consequently, students across different disciplines face increasing demand to develop skills to answer both academia's and businesses' increasing need to collect, manage, evaluate, apply and extract knowledge from data and critically reflect upon the derived…

Rubin, Andee – Teaching Statistics: An International Journal for Teachers, 2021
The data sets used in statistics education have changed over time, from mathematically "well-behaved" ones that facilitated computation, to more context-rich sources and now, with the increasing influence of data science practices, to "found" data, often from open data sites. As data sources change, it is important for…

Fry, Kym; Makar, Katie – Teaching Statistics: An International Journal for Teachers, 2021
In this paper, we propose that informal aspects of data science could be introduced in primary school. The International Data Science in Schools Project (IDSSP) framework for data science curriculum provides a guide for a data science curriculum aimed at upper secondary level. We analyzed synergies between the IDSSP framework and the current…
