If math is the language of science, then why do many students enjoy math or science but not both? A current problem in STEM education is a failure to help students close the gap between these two important subjects. Statistics can be an enjoyable, practical tool for relating science and math, and teaching stats to students is not nearly as difficult as you might think! Here are several simple yet powerful statistics I’ve taught and implemented in middle school and high school science and math classes that have helped my students connect the dots in STEM. I hope they will do the same for yours!
This handout walks through six statistics that are useful for group and variable comparisons: Simple Stats for STEM Booklet
