One of the goals of the American Statistical Association (ASA) is to improve
statistics education at all levels. Through the STatistics Education Web

teachers who teach statistics concepts in their classrooms. STEW is an
online resource for peer-reviewed lesson plans for K-12 teachers. The web site is maintained by the ASA and accessible to K-12 teachers throughout the world.
