TEACHING STATISTICS USING GEOGEBRA

In this paper, we show an alternative way to teach concepts to our students on Statistics in a more dynamic and interactive approach.

Statistics is one of the main content blocks of the new curricula in the Faculties of Business, at Pablo de Olavide University, consisting of several core courses in the degrees in Business and Management and Finance and Accounting and the Double degrees in Business and Management and Law and in Finance and Accounting and Law. The courses are called Business Statistics I and II, and Statistics for Finance I and II.

These courses must provide to our students the understanding of the basic and advanced concepts and procedures on Statistics. To do so, we have decided to use GeoGebra, which is a dynamic geometry software with a useful computer algebra system.

GeoGebra includes an interactive graphic frontend as well as others of algebraic and dynamic-geometric types, covering all educational levels (and particularly university ones).

In this sense, we think that Geogebra is a very useful package to use in our teaching activities because its current version includes a new statistical package, which allows our students to work interactively the concepts and procedures via experimentation and simulation.
