About the competition
The Australian Statistics Project Competition is an activity that assists teachers present lessons on data and statistics in a relevant and relaxed environment. The chance and data stream of school mathematics syllabi is particularly well suited for practical, project-based and team-based learning activities, and the Competition offers a framework and focus to support such learning activities. The competition is equally relevant to Science.
In contrast to a traditional mathematics competition the Australian Statistics Project Competition allows participants to experience the application of mathematics to real world problems while:
choosing to investigate questions of personal interest
learning to work in a team
experiencing problem-based learning
taking time to develop their ideas
applying all of their skills (creativity, design, management, record keeping, analysis, logic, interpretation, spelling and writing skills) in a mathematical context.
