Chapter 11: Three Perspectives on the Central Objects of Study for Grades Pre-K−8 Statistics. Randall E. Groth (Salisbury University) examines three contemporary approaches to framing pre-K−8 statistics curricula. He discusses mathematical procedures, mathematical concepts, and the process of statistical investigation as three common central objects of study.

This chapter also portrays the process of statistical investigation as an essential curricular component.
