Abstract

Our project group, in association with the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS), designed a professional development framework tailored toward teaching statistics to middle years mathematics teachers. We held focus groups with mathematics teachers and interviews with administrative authorities and professional development experts to develop recommendations for content, delivery, and distribution, with the purpose of creating an effective and appealing program. In this way, we hoped to assist the ABS in promoting a more statistically aware and literate Australian population.
