|Title:||Middle School Students' Interest in Statistical Literacy||Contributor(s):||Carmichael, Colin (author); Hay, Ian (author)||Publication Date:||2008||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/10303||Abstract:||This paper presents the results of a research review into the development of middle school students' interest in statistical literacy. In particular it reviews the concept of interest and its motivational influence on learning. Findings reveal that very little research has examined the influence of positive affect such as interest on learning in the middle-school statistics context. Further, these findings suggest that interest development will be the result of a complex interplay of classroom influences and individual factors such as: students' knowledge of statistics, their enjoyment of statistics and their perceptions of competency in relation to the learning of statistics.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Name:||MERGA 31: 31st Annual Conference of the Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, Brisbane, Australia, 28th June - 1st July, 2008||Conference Details:||MERGA 31: 31st Annual Conference of the Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, Brisbane, Australia, 28th June - 1st July, 2008||Source of Publication:||Navigating Currents and Charting Directions: Proceedings of the 31st Annual Conference of the Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, v.1, p. 109-115||Publisher:||MERGA: Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia Inc||Place of Publication:||Brisbane, Australia||Field of Research (FOR):||130208 Mathematics and Numeracy Curriculum and Pedagogy||Socio-Economic Outcome Codes:||930101 Learner and Learning Achievement||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||E1 Refereed Scholarly Conference Publication||Other Links:||http://www.merga.net.au/documents/RP92008.pdf
