Modelling with data: Advancing STEM in the primary curriculum

Modelling with data

Project dates: 01/01/2015 - 31/12/2018

Improving the nation’s skills in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) remains a continuing concern, especially given the decline in international test results. The project will introduce a new approach to promoting this learning across grades 3-6 through modelling with data. With a focus on inquiry processes involving data variation and uncertainty within STEM-based contexts, the project will develop the important mathematical and statistical literacies needed for lifting student achievements. In advancing both theory and practice, the project will contribute to knowledge of primary students’ capabilities for STEM problem solving and ways of enhancing implementation of The Australian Curriculum.
