Bishop, Alan J. et al., International handbook of mathematics education. Vol. 4. Pt. 1. Kluwer, Dordrecht (ISBN 0-7923-3533-3). 205-237 (1996).
In the past decade, topics in data handling have begun to play a more prominent role in the mathematics curricula in many countries. In this chapter we note the historical roots of the current data handling (or data analysis) emphasis, point out some of the national reform efforts that have catalysed an interest in data handling, and discuss various data handling curricula. Special attention is given to the use of technology in teaching data handling, to the importance of professional development of teachers of data handling, and to some issues for research in the teaching and learning of data handling.
