Abstract

This chapter reviews the roles of technology in statistics education and introduces technologies available for classroom use. A few concrete examples of how select technologies support the teaching of probability and statistics guided by the Common Core State Standards in Mathematics of high school Probability and Statistics (CCSSM-PS) are presented. The reality of the implementation of the CCSSM poses a rather exciting opportunity for all of us in mathematics education. It presents an opportunity to plan and create mathematics lessons based on good teaching strongly tied with technology. As the efficacy of the CCSSM-PS hinges on how teachers draw upon their content knowledge to facilitate student learning through technology, it is significant to provide professional development programs that help teachers infuse technology with the teaching of probability and statistics.
