ab: Summary: The new secondary Australian mathematics curricula have more
statistics than the existing Queensland senior mathematics curricula.
This paper discusses the attitudes to, and preparedness for, aspects of
the implementation of the Australian Senior Mathematics Curricula
within a group of Sunshine Coast (Queensland) mathematics educators. We
found on the evidence presented that teachers value the importance of
statistics, and see how technology can assist with teaching and
learning statistics, but teachers are ambivalent towards statistics and
feel less competent to teach statistics. (ERIC)
