Example from Malaysia

The example shows is to test the conjecture that the higher the magnitude of an earthquake the higher the death toll.

The lesson structure includes

  • Materials for motivation and to provide context for learning - videos, newspaper and so on
  • Presentation of a situation
  • Students posing problems or select from a collection of problems
  • Students solve the problems using suitable statistical tools
  • Students make conjectures for further investigation
  • Further self-directed learning
One suggestion is to have the same tools in all chapters and students need to learn to decide the best tool to use.
