ASA STatistics Education Web
ASA the American Statistical Association has recently launched STatistics Education Web (STEW), that aims to reach out to K-12 (KS2-KS4) mathematics and science teachers who teach statistics concepts in their classrooms. STEW is an online resource for peer-reviewed lesson plans for teachers. The web site is maintained by the ASA and accessible to teachers throughout the world.

CensusAtSchool 2012/2013 is now live!
Take part in the brand new questionnaire with your class now
This year our CensusAtSchool Questionnaire is comprised of 9 questions designed to return a diversity of continuous and discrete data for your class to explore. We have developed an online mapping tool which returns the distances and time taken for learners’ to travel to school.
Our new probability game ‘Knock Knock Bang’ enables learners to explore tree diagrams from a fun and interactive approach. A resource to accompany this game is available along with plenty of other resources to accompany this year’s questionnaire.

Puoi utlizzare i campioni di dati in aula per migliorare l'apprendimento della statistica e della manipolazione dei dati. Alcuni dei dataset più vecchi possono aver bisogno di fogli di codifica per comprenderne il contenuto. Vi è inoltre una pagina con gli stessi questionari disponibili per la visualizzazione.
