Authentic Statistics

The Authentic Statistics Project is a computer-based learning environment supporting and enhancing statistics learning among high school students. This project has been highlighted in mathematical reform documents and is being used by researchers in Canada, the United States, and Mexico. In addition, it has been adopted into the grade 7 mathematics curriculum by Bill Nevin at St. George's high school.
