The Problem Solving Approach
Classroom resources for teaching using a statistical problem solving approach
In 2005 and 2006 the Royal Statistical Society Centre for Statistical Education undertook a review of the statistics and data handling content of GCSE to determine what should be retained as part of the core curriculum for mathematics and what may be beneficially seeded for delivery through other subjects, particularly science.
As part of this review the Centre worked with experienced teachers to develop a set of eight exemplar classroom teaching and learning resources. These resources use a statistical problem solving approach and, in addition, an online assessment to assess understanding of the problem solving cycle was developed and successfully trialled. You can view the publication here at amstat.
The resources have been highly acclaimed by teachers who have used them in class and they can be found, together with online guidance slides in the RSSCSE archive here.
