Teaching Statistics seeks to help teachers of biology, business studies, economics, geography, mathematics, the sciences and the social sciences etc. by showing how statistical ideas can illuminate their work and how to make proper use of statistics in their teaching. It is also directed towards those who teach statistics as a separate subject and to those who teach statistics in conjunction with mathematics courses. In the USA, teachers will find it useful in teaching the data-handling aspects of the NCTM Standards.The emphasis of the articles is on teaching and the classroom.
The aim is to inform, entertain, encourage and enlighten all who use statistics in their teaching or who teach statistics per se.
