Dr. Mary Lou Metz, a faculty member in the Mathematics Department, recently published an article in the November 2010 issue of the Journal of Statistics Education, an international refereed journal on the teaching and learning of statistics.

Her article, “Using GAISE and NCTM Standards as Frameworks for Teaching Probability and Statistics to Pre-Service Elementary and Middle School Mathematics Teachers,” discusses statistical concepts that have been identified as necessary for statistical literacy.

The article also describes how an undergraduate course in Probability and Statistics for pre-service elementary and middle school teachers was revised and implemented using the Guidelines for Assessment and Instruction in Statistics Education and the NCTM Standards.
