Attitudes towards statistics have been considered to have impact to the students’ achievement in statistics. Active learning is one of the teaching models that can reduce the student anxiety and improving the positive attitudes towards statistics. Learning statistics for some students might be quite challenging, they always bear in mind that statistics will always involve a massive computation process. Active learning could be one alternative for teaching statistics, since one of the benefit is, it escalates the satisfaction of learning process. Student Team Achievement Division (STAD), one of the teaching models in active learning is implemented in this research to improve the students’ positive attitudes towards statistics. The results of this study show that STAD is not improving the students’ positive attitudes; it even made them to have more negative attitudes. The student expects that Statistics as a subject will be more on formula and number routines, experiencing it in student centered learning situation may give them some discomfort due to their expectation on the subject. One of the key factors why this is happening is that implementing STAD as the only teaching model is not appropriate for teaching statistics, as the topics become more complex.
