Some of the things we are engaged with:
National Schools Literacy Project - creativity, communication, collaboration!
Teams of students engage in this project-based learning activity via an investigation, on any topic, which uses data collection, exploration, visualisation and interpretation, and develop a poster (for online submission) that reports upon their investigation. Find out more here.
Animated videos and complementary supporting materials on introductory statistics topics
for primary and secondary teachers – and first year students are available from www.statstuneup.com.au.
