The Statistical Society of Australia is preparing a submission regarding the Statistics component of the proposed Stage 6 Mathematics Syllabus (including Extensions 1 and 2) as developed by the NSW Board of Studies, Teaching and Educational Standards (BOSTES). The proposed syllabus can be located at:
An initial SSA outline response is available here. We are requesting urgent assistance from any members who are able to assist in the construction of this document. This can be provided in two ways. Firstly, by sending through comments on either the proposed syllabus or the current draft directly to both Peter Howley ([email protected]) and Scott Sisson ([email protected]), or secondly by directly editing the response via Google docs (please contact Scott for access to the document).
The time frame for this is tight – the final response is due to be submitted by 31st August. Accordingly, please provide all comments by 5pm (AEST) on Monday 22nd August, so that they may be incorporated into the final version.
Many thanks in advance for your positive response to this important opportunity to influence the way statistics is taught in NSW Secondary Schools.
Peter Howley and Scott Sisson
