Make stats work for learners, teachers

07 May 2012

The Schools Development Unit (SDU) recently hosted a seminar by Desiree Timmet, an ex-teacher and Maths4stats Western Cape co-ordinator at Statistics South Africa.

The talk, on Developing a Statistically Literate Society: Using statistics for meaningful evidence-based decision-making, delivered to a classroom of primary-and secondary-school teachers, formed part of the SDU's Teacher Enrichment Initiative.

Timmet spoke of how, by educators employing relevant real-life data in their teaching learners can be made to understand that statistics form part of everyday life.
