Mathematics for Primary School Teachers. Unit 5: Statistics

Primary tabs

Mathematics for Primary School Teachers has been digitally published by Saide, with the Wits School of Education. It is a revised version of a course originally written for the Bureau for In-service Teacher Development (Bited) at the then Johannesburg College of Education (now Wits School of Education).

The course is for primary school teachers (Foundation and Intermediate Phase) and consists of six content units on the topics of geometry, numeration, operations, fractions, statistics and measurement. Though they do not cover the entire curriculum, the six units cover content from all five mathematics content areas represented in the curriculum.

In this very short introductory course on statistics, we will outline the most important terminology which is often used in statistics, we will look at ways of representing information and then we will look very simply at some statistical interpretations of given information.
