Throughout the book, the author provides a perfect integration of research methods with

statistical reasoning by illustrating the various kinds of relevant examples from actual studies.

The RMFII Project has developed evidence-based learning progressions in algebraic, geometric and

statistical reasoning, which build on the former work on multiplicative thinking of the Scaffolding Numeracy in the Middle Years (SNMY) Project (Siemon, Breed, & Virgona, 2005).

Balan and Lamothe developed the textbook from their biostatistics lecture course introducing biology students to

In contrast, the probabilistic interpretation involves

Braude argues that these ideas led to a mathematical abstraction that created a tension between

The statistics education research community has been discussing the lead in to inference, through informal inference, for some time, and for example the fifth

Statistical Reasoning, Thinking and Literacy Forum (SRTL-5 in 2005) had informal inferential reasoning as its theme.

A survey of 162 articles in three journals of statistics education from 2005 through 2009 indicated the following topics, with percentages of total topic presentations indicated in parentheses (van der Merwe & Wilkinson, 2010): teaching and learning (29%),

That study, has been criticized by many, including the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, because of flawed
