Part II: Fundamentals for Teaching Statistics
Statistics is becoming increasingly important to all levels of citizenry, with more and more data available to inform decision-making. How this data is utilised by those forming the decisions and those acting on the decisions is necessarily impacted by the statistical learning experiences made available. The variety of experiences in the teaching of statistics in countries across the world outlined in Part I shows that the importance of such teaching is being recognised. Align this importance with the changing focus in statistics from computation to inference and a reconceptualisation of the teaching of statistics becomes necessary. This reconceptualisation must include not just changes to teaching methods but changes to the fundamentals for teaching statistics.
