Addressing Pre-Service Teachers' Misconceptions About Confidence Intervals
Increased attention to statistical concepts has been a prevalent trend in revised mathematics curricula across grade levels. However, the preparation of secondary school mathematics educators has not received similar attention, and learning opportunities provided to these educators is oftentimes insufficient for teaching statistics well. The purpose of this study is to analyze implications of pedagogical practices on pre-service teachers’ conceptions about confidence intervals. My research inquires about statistical reasoning from the perspective of students majoring in mathematics education enrolled in an undergraduate statistics education course who have previously completed an introductory course in statistics.
