In recent years, the most significant change in the K-12 mathematics curriculum is the increased emphasis on statistics at every grade level. State and national mathematics standards are advocating for an increased emphasis on statistics. Children as young as preschool and kindergarten are engaged in studying data analysis or statistics. K-6 mathematics textbooks also include sections on statistics. These sections are no longer the last sections of the textbook, but more often the first sections to be covered. Understanding statistics is important in our modern society because as we encounter more and more statistics, an understanding of statistics is necessary for an educated citizenry to make informed decisions. Further, some would suggest that an understanding of statistics provides opportunities for higher education and opens the gate for educational equity for all!
