ab: In this chapter, we focus primarily on what we have learned more recently
from research about how younger students reason about data,
concentrating on ideas that begin developing in early elementary
school. We therefore do not review the literature related to
statistical inference. One reason for not reviewing that literature
here is that a reasonable treatment would require us to also review the
development of probabilistic thinking. But more importantly, core ideas
in reasoning about data tend to get shoved to the wings as soon as
statistical inference takes the stage. The issues we discuss here,
though basic, are still essential to statistical reasoning in the upper
grades. (orig.)
