Adams, G. (ed.), Proceedings of the British Society for Research into Learning Mathematics (BSRLM). Vol. 34, No. 2. Proceedings of the day conference, University of Southampton, UK, June 14, 2014. London: British Society for Research into Learning Mathematics (BSRLM). 43-48 (2014).
Summary: This article describes part of a PhD study exploring how statistical literacy knowledge and skills may be transferred from mathematics to other domains, investigating the skills and dispositions of pre-service teachers. I report on an observational case-study of science student teachers on a postgraduate Initial Teacher Education (ITE) course, delivering a model lesson involving statistics to their peers. I discuss my initial investigation with reference to recent international research in the field, finding that the participants have a wide range of statistical knowledge and experience leading to mixed views and dispositions towards the application of statistics in science lessons.
