The teaching of statistics

Robert W. Morris
International Conference on Teaching Statistics, n.º 2
Studies in mathematics education. vol. 7.

UNESCO | 1989 | 258 páginas

Descrição: This volume examines the teaching of statistics in the whole range of education, but concentrates on primary and secondary schools. It is based upon selected topics from the Second International Congress on Teaching Statistics (ICOTS 2), convened in Canada in August 1986. The contents of this volume divide broadly into four parts: statistics in primary education; statistics in secondary education; theoretical concepts; and two case studies. Part 1 comprises four contributions, three of them based on discovery. The fourth is a comparative study of what is currently taught to children in the age range of 5 to 11 years in Canada, the United Kingdom, and the United States. Part 2 provides an account of recent developments in the teaching of statistics in Australia, the Federal Republic of Germany, the Netherlands, and the United States. Part 3 of the volume is a collection of four contributions for the consideration of teachers in the collection and representation of data. Two case studies make up Part 4. The first describes the competition for the annual statistics prize in the United Kingdom and the second is a wide-ranging account of the growth of the teaching of probability and statistics in Italian schools. There is also a personal view by Ed Jacobsen called "Why in the World Should We Teach Statistics?" and a history of the teaching of statistics by Maria Gabriella Ottaviani, devoted to the growth of statistics in the universities of Europe and the Americas

The Teaching of basic sciences. Mathematics

Studies in Mathematics Education, Volume 1
Robert W. Morris (editor)

UNESCO | 1980 | 129 páginas


Descrição: Reports on seven specific programs for improving mathematics education in the schools of Hungary, Indonesia, Japan, the Philippines, the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, the United Kingdom, and the United Republic of Tanzania are presented. The report from the United Kingdom deals with the Continuing Mathematics Project that focuses on innumeracy in the 16 to 19 age group and new materials designed to deal with this problem. The remaining six articles describe developments in secondary mathematics as a part of the general secondary program. Biographical notes about the contributing authors are appended.

The Teaching of basic sciences. Mathematics
Studies in Mathematics Education, Volume 2

Robert W. Morris (editor)

UNESCO | 1981 | 179 páginas

Descrição: This volume was geared to answering the question, does the teaching of mathematics correspond to the needs of the majority of pupils and the society. There are three types of chapters: (1) descriptions of goals reflecting some need of society; (2) case studies of national goal setting; and (3) a summary of the May 1980 meeting of the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), which undertook a review of the goals of mathematics teaching. Individual chapters are: (1) Goals as a Reflection of the Needs of Society; (2) Goals as a Reflection of the Needs of the Learner; (3) Goals of Mathematics for Rural Development; (4) School Mathematics-Links with Commerce and Industry; (5) Goals of Mathematics as a Reflection of the Requirements of Production; (6) Educational Objectives for Mathematics Compatible with its Development as a Discipline; (7) New Goals for Old: An Analysis of Reactions to Recent Reforms in Several Countries; (8) The NCTM PRISM Project: An Attempt to Make Curriculum Change More Rational and Systematic; (9) The Evolution of Mathematics Curricula in the Arab States; (10) Goals of the Mathematics Curriculum in British Columbia: Intended, Implemented, and Realized; and (11) Report of a Meeting on the Goals of Mathematics Education
