Significant Statistics: Viewed with a Contextual Lens

Sandi Tait-McCutcheon


This paper examines the pedagogical and organisational changes three lead teachers
made to their statistics teaching and learning programs. The lead teachers posed the
research question: What would the effect of contextually integrating statistical
investigations and literacies into other curriculum areas be on student achievement?
By finding the significance of statistics nested within mathematics and other
curriculum learning areas, the teachers increased their own value of statistical
content and contexts and this impacted positively on the statistical achievement
outcomes of their students.
