ab: Summary: This chapter addresses data modelling as a means of promoting
statistical literacy in the early grades. Consideration is first given
to the importance of increasing young childrenâ€™s exposure to
statistical reasoning experiences and how data modelling can be a rich
means of doing so. Selected components of data modelling are then
reviewed, followed by a report on some findings from the third-year of
a three-year longitudinal study across grades one through three.
