Book News Annotation:

Graham, a British writer and developer of mathematics education materials, completes a set of three volumes on developing mathematical thinking for primary mathematics specialists, secondary and FE mathematics teachers; support staff; and others interested in their own mathematical learning or that of others. He introduces statistical thinking with many exercises to illustrate principles. The other two volumes cover algebra and geometry. Distributed in the US by Sage Publications.

Synopsis:

Developing Thinking in Statistics provides teachers, support staff, and students of education a dynamic approach for teaching statistics. Designed to heighten awareness of statistical ideas, the book explores four main themes:
  • Describing
  • Comparing
  • Inter-relating
  • Uncertainty

The authors encourage the use of computers and graphics calculators to bring an added dimension to learning. Arranged in an accessible task based format, this is an essential text for all secondary mathematics teachers-and students of mathematics education-who want a research-based and comprehensive book that will illuminate, and inspire interest in their subject.

Statistics is a key area of the school mathematics curriculum where maths and the real world meet. Although potentially a subject where teaching can be motivating and relevant to everyday concerns, nevertheless it is often seen as boring and involving largely mechanical calculations.

Developing Thinking in Statistics will enable teachers and others interested in statistical thinking to become excited and inspired by the big ideas of statistics and, in turn, teach them enthusiastically to pupils aged seven to 16 years.

Designed to heighten awareness of statistical ideas, the book explores key themes within statistics using ideas developed by the influential team at The Open University's Centre for Mathematics Education. Themes include:

· Measurement

· Variation

· Randomness

· Uncertainty

Ideas are presented imaginatively through a variety of approaches, including ICT-based simulations and also through the medium of telling' stories andevents. Arranged in an accessible task-based format, this is an essential text for secondary maths teachers and students of maths education. It is a comprehensive book that will illuminate and inspire interest in their subject, based on imaginative use of ICT, engaging narrative, firm research and good practice.

Developing Thinking in Statistics is a set book on the Open University Course ME626 Developing Statistical Thinking, part of the Graduate Diploma in Mathematics Education.
