While looking over the proceedings for #60ISIWSC and the satellite IASE event a link was found, via one of the keynotes, to five statistical education resources.
They are all common links that will have been on the ICSE site at one point in time but here they are together, in one place.
Thanks to our Maths Competition sponsor, Winton Capital Management, we were able to provide a goodie bag for the teachers attending the 2015 live final.
Amongst the treasures, all wrapped up in a reusable Winton bag, we had Jordan Ellenberg’s “How Not to Be Wrong: The Power of Mathematical Thinking”, perfect light reading for those who appreciate the importance of mathematics.
In addition we had a relevant edition of Significance Magazine (February 2015 (Vol 12 Issue 1)) and the Spring issue of Teaching Statistics (Volume 37, Issue 1). Both were provided directly by Wiley (@Wiley_Stats) who we wish to thank on behalf of the teachers.
Incidentally, UK based teachers can get a reduced rate subscription to Teaching Statistics (Print + Online) if they’re a NCTM/IASE or RSS e-teacher Member, find details here. And you can access all issues up to 11:2 of Significance for free here.
If you have an interest in statistical education you should know that the latest issue of the Teaching Statistics Journal is out now (Autumn 2014: Volume 36 – Number 3). This issue has an original article on developing consistency in the terminology and display of Bar Graphs and Histograms, and a fascinating practical activity for teaching Poisson Distribution using the Stock Market.
You can view the current issue here at the Wiley Online Library. The Wiley site contains all the information you need to subscribe or contribute to Teaching Statistics.
