Part of the series Statistics and Probability for the Australian Curriculum.
Statistics and Probability for the Australian Curriculum supports an active inquiry approach to developing statistical thinking, an increasingly important skill throughout industry, government and education. Real statistical data investigations guide students from first thoughts, through planning, collecting and exploring data, to reporting. Written explicitly for the Australian Curriculum, the two-book series supports in-depth study of statistics and probability and helps students of all abilities to draw conclusions and relate learning to every day contexts. The knowledge and skills developed in this series will build a solid foundation for understanding the processes of modelling probabilities, which lie at the heart of statistical inference. Stimulating activities introduce each topic - each section begins with an introductory activity to stimulate class discussion and engage students with the material. Assistance with overcoming common misconceptions - Key terms, hints and caution boxes support students throughout the learning process by offering handy references that help clarify misconceptions. Focus on skill development through investigations and experiments - Exercises and examples within the books, linked to additional activities in the Teacher Resource Package, focus on developing the skills needed to master statistical investigations and probability experiments. Detailed review sections help with revision - Review sections include a chapter summary, mind map, short answer and extended response questions to consolidate understanding.
