Abstract
Today's world is overwhelmed with statistics. Virtually, every economic and scientific activity relies to it. And with the modern technology it's easy to visualize these statistics in figures, graphs, charts and maps - making analyses of information even easier. But in education the use of statistics is statistics is taught as part of mathematics often without context or meaning, or is used merely to show a result instead of doing real analysis and investigation. Research suggests that, while teachers are willing to use statistics, they feel their students experience greater difficulties in statistics than in other topics, and they consider themselves not well prepared to help their students face these difficulties. The aim of the I-Use project is to create an in-service teacher training course that will deal with how to make sense of information through different presentation forms and media.
