ab: Summary: Consistent with the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics,
the authors write that they have asked students to do statistics
projects with real data. To obtain real data, their students use the
free Web-based app, Census at School, created by the American
Statistical Association (ASA) to help promote civic awareness among
school students and to attract more students into the statistics
profession. The app has improved statistics teaching by allowing
students to collect real data, generate a random sample on a variety of
variables, and learn basic statistics concepts. Before detailing these
topics, the authors provide a quick summary of two projects that they
have conducted at different levels. (ERIC)
