Abstract

Josh Reid and Colin Carmichael describe how some Year 6 children have developed their understanding of mathematics by studying Asian countries. The statistical analyses undertaken by these children appears to have strengthened their understanding of statistical concepts and at the same time provided them with tools for understanding complex socio-cultural relationships.
