Making Statistics Fun at High School

World Statistics Day was celebrated with gusto at East Islip High School on Dec. 7. During lunch periods, the school’s AP Statistics students collected data on a multitude of situations. “They were able to introduce statistics to East Islip in a fun and exciting way, getting the entire school involved in the data collection,” said math teacher Raymond Willie.

Recognized across the planet, World Statistics Day serves to strengthen public awareness of the important work that statisticians carry out each day in collecting accurate, objective and comparable data to support a wide range of national and international activities.
