Abstract: 

The first part provides a perspective showing how the influence of the subject has grown. From this the main aims are advocated and a specimen syllabus linked to applications is outlined. Suitable teaching strategies are described, illustrated by a specific example. References to suitable teaching materials are also given. Throughout, the international context is borne in mind, for statistics is an essential part in any education system.
