Home Library Articles on Education / Resources for Teaching and Learning About Probability and Statistics Resources for Teaching and Learning About Probability and Statistics Author: Hea-Jin Lee Date: May 1999 As increased use of technology and the empirical sciences spreads throughout the global community, the use of data and graphs to communicate information is ever increasing. Daily decision making and discussions of social issues are increasingly influenced by statistics and projected outcomes based on estimated probabilities. Unfortunately, most high school graduates have little or no background in the mathematics associated with calculating probabilities and interpreting statistics. Therefore, in order for our students to be adequately prepared to make informed decisions, schools need to provide greater attention to probability and statistics in mathematics and other courses. Numerous educators (NCTM, 1989; NRC, 1989; Shaughnessy, 1992) have recommended the introduction of concepts related to probability and statistics throughout the school years for all students, not just those students bound for college.

    Course Information:
    Overview of the Course Data Analysis, Statistics, and Probability introduces statistics as a problem-solving process. In this course, you will build your skills through investigations of different ways to collect and represent data and to analyze and interpret variation in data. The course consists of 10 sessions, each with a half hour of video programming, problem-solving activities provided online and in a print guide, and interactive activities and demonstrations on the Web. Although each session includes suggested times for how long it may take to complete all of the required activities, these times are approximate. Some activities may take longer. You should allow at least two and a half hours for each session. The 10th session explores ways to apply the statistical concepts you've learned in K-8 classrooms. You should complete the sessions sequentially. Session 1: Statistics as Problem Solving
    Consider statistics as a problem-solving process and examine its four components: asking questions, collecting appropriate data, analyzing the data, and interpreting the results. This session investigates the nature of data and its potential sources of variation. Variables, bias, and random sampling are introduced. Session 2: Data Organization and Representation
    Explore different ways of representing, analyzing, and interpreting data, including line plots, frequency tables, cumulative and relative frequency tables, and bar graphs. Learn how to use intervals to describe variation in data. Learn how to determine and understand the median.

    Sports. Alan Barson has done a splendid job including a wide assortment of topicsto engage children in activities involving probability and statistics.
    Probability and Statistics
    by Alan Barson Frank Schaffer Publications, Inc. 1995
    Torrance, CA 90505
    Barson also gives several excellent suggestions for extending this experiment. He suggests playing a game of hangman to see if this new knowledge assists them in discovering the secret word. Another suggestion was to examine the keys on a typewriter and explain their positioning based on this research. In the third follow-up activity the children are required to write three sentences about themselves without using any of these five most commonly used letters. I assigned this particular activity for homework that night, and many thought writing three sentences for homework would be a snap. But the next day my students came to class saying how much fun they'd had trying, although they found it impossible, to come up with three good, coherent sentences. This activity also generated much discussion.
    Another interesting activity in section two is a "True-False, Multiple Choice" worksheet. The task is to speculate what the odds are at passing a true-false test and a multiple choice test by just "guessing." Your students will enjoy taking this test. The children flip a coin (heads -true, tails -false) to determine the answer, summarize this information, and graph the data. What do you think the odds are?
    How many three-letter words can be made from the letters A, E, T, and S? is the initial challenge in the game "Making Words," found in section three - "Games People Win." Then, a little twist is added. You must now put all four letters (A, E, T, and S) in a container and remove three letters, one at a time. You must place the letters in front of you in the same order they were drawn. Yes, you don't always get a three-letter word! If you get a three-letter word you score a point. This continues for 20 rounds and the player with the most points wins. Our seventh grade students loved this game so much, they continued to play during recess. This is an excellent game to incorporate language skills into the math classroom.

    Academic Staff and their Research Interests
    Professor C W Anderson Professor J D Biggins studied Mathematics at the University of Cambridge (BA 1973). The undergraduate degree was followed by an MSc (1974), with the main subject for this being Statistics, and a DPhil (1976), in Probability Theory; both postgraduate degrees are from the University of Oxford. He joined the staff at the University of Sheffield in 1976, and became a Professor in 1994. His main research interest is in applied probability, in particular branching processes and their applications (in biology, computer science, fractals, and non-linear differential equations), random walks and large deviation theory. Professor N H Bingham took his first degree in Mathematics at Oxford (BA 1966) and his doctorate at Cambridge (PhD 1969), working on Probability Theory under D G Kendall. He then taught for thirty years in the University of London (Westfield, Royal Holloway and Birkbeck Colleges), becoming Reader in 1980 and Professor in 1985. He joined Brunel University in 2000 before coming to Sheffield in 2003. His interests centre on probability and stochastic processes, mathematical finance and statistics (particularly non- and semi-parametrics). He holds a Cambridge ScD (1996), and is the co-author of two books, Regular Variation (with C M Goldie and J L Teugels) and Risk-Neutral Valuation (with R Kiesel).
