Abstract: 

Over the past decade there has been an increasingly strong call for statistics<br>education to focus on statistical literacy, statistical reasoning, and statistical<br>thinking. Our goal in creating this book is to provide a useful resource for educators<br>and researchers interested in helping students at all educational levels to develop<br>these cognitive processes and learning outcomes. This book includes cutting-edge<br>research on teaching and learning statistics, along with specific pedagogical<br>implications. We designed the book for academic audiences interested in statistics<br>education as well as for teachers, curriculum writers, and technology developers. (From preface)
