Problem Solving - Handling Data and Statistics
A set of eight exemplar classroom teaching and learning resources that used a statistical problem approach and an online assessment to assess understanding of the problem solving cycle.
The eight problems are: How safe is your area?, Crime Scene Evidence, Virtual Reality Gloves, Where's worst?, How far, fast and high?, How old is your height?
What's in your bowl?, World Population.
You can also find resources from the workshop: 'Using a problem solving approach for Teaching Statistics'.
The international CensusAtSchool project collects and disseminates real data for use by teachers and pupils in data-handling, ICT and across the curriculum for learning and teaching.
SportAtSchool is based on the successful international CensusAtSchool project and has been inspired by the 2012 London Summer Olympic Games. An online questionnaire is used to capture learners’ data, the resultant real data can then be used with our resources and lesson plans. As usual these are free, downloadable and contain a variety of classroom activities.

Statistical Needs of Non-Specialist Young Workers
The Statistical Education Project 16-19 was set up in 1981 and one of the concerns of the project was to find out the nature of statistical ideas and techniques being used by young people as they enter employment at the age of 18 or so, following full-time education. The interest was in the needs of the general employee on entering and becoming established within the company.
