Curriculum design: to enhance students’ learning
AbstractChina’s Ministry of Education is pushing a reform to include statistics and probability in its national elementary and secondary curriculum. First, the history of introducing statistics and probability into school in China is examined in this paper. Then, the intentions and characters of the new National Curriculum Standards are summarized. Finally, we take the teaching of “average” as an example to illustrate what we could do to make statistics and probability seem coherent by better design of textbooks.
