Conferências Plenárias

The uses of statistical literacy, por Janet Ainley – Universidade de Leicester, Reino Unido

When young children learn to read and write in their mother tongue, which is the normal meaning of ‘literacy’, they already know what these skills are useful for. They experience adults using reading and writing for a range of purposes everyday, and as their skills develop they can immediately use reading and writing for many of the same purposes as adults. They can read text in books, magazines, birthday cards, on computer screens, and write lists, text messages and notes to friends. The uses and purposes of statistical literacy are much less visible to children, and indeed to many adults. Even when statistical concepts and skills, such as sampling, or measures of average, are taught, the power and usefulness of those ideas is not always clearly connected to the experiences of learners. As a result, students and adults may ‘understand’ different measures of average, but not know why and when such as measure might be useful or appropriate. In this talk I will argue for the need for pedagogic approaches which foreground the uses of statistical ideas in ways which are meaningful for learners, and thus contribute to the development of useable statistical literacy.

The challenge of developing students’ statistical reasoning, por Dani Ben-Zvi – Universidade de Haifa, Israel

Statistical reasoning is the way people reason with statistical ideas and make sense of statistical information. This involves making interpretations based on sets of data, graphical representations, and statistical summaries. Statistical reasoning combines complex ideas about data and chance, which leads to making inferences and interpreting statistical results. Underlying statistical reasoning is a conceptual understanding of a web of important ideas, such as distribution, center, variability, association, uncertainty, randomness, and sampling. In this presentation, I reflect on research projects –conducted during the past 20 years with colleagues and graduate students– on students’ learning to reason statistically. I contemplate on what I have learnt and offer some lessons. The questions I discuss are: What is statistical reasoning? Why is it challenging for learners at all ages? What can research tell us about students’ statistical reasoning and its development? How can we support students’ statistical reasoning? What research challenges are of current interest to the statistics education community?


Painel plenário de discussão com o tema Statistics education: Issues and perspectives.

Andreas Eichler – Universidade de Kassel, Alemanha

Dani Ben-Zvi – Universidade de Haifa, Israel

Janet Ainley – Universidade de Leicester, Reino Unido

João Pedro da Ponte (moderador) – Instituto de Educação, Universidade de Lisboa, Portugal

Este painel abordará as seguintes questões:

   – Objetivos da educação estatística no ensino básico e secundário;

   – Avanços e retrocessos na importância da estatística no currículo do ensino básico – o que é razoável promover?

   – Estatística no currículo escolar – uma relação privilegiada com a matemática ou uma relação privilegiada com outros tópicos?

   – Possíveis contribuições da investigação para potenciar o estado da educação estatística no ensino básico e secundário.


Sessões práticas

Paralelamente à Conferência decorrerão Sessões Práticas em português, destinadas a professores de matemática dos ensinos básico e secundário, que conjuntamente com as outras sessões do programa são creditadas, na modalidade de Curso de Formação (0,6 créditos).
