Are we preparing young people for the data revolution? Event report

From StatsLife
In July the Royal Statistical Society held a half-day event, ‘Statistics across the curriculum: are we preparing young people for the data revolution?’. The meeting built on previous research on statistical content across subjects at AS and A Level, in the RSS report A World Full of Data, and in joint RSS and the Advisory Committee on Mathematics Education (ACME) report Embedding Statistics at A Level. These reports include recommendations that learned societies, professional bodies and subject associations should ensure that support is made available for those teaching statistics within their subject areas.
