- Calculating the Mean, Median, and Mode (Russell, 2016)"Before you can begin to understand statistics, you need to understand mean, median, and mode. Without these three methods of calculation, it would be impossible to interpret much of the data we use in daily life." (Russell, 2016)

- Mastering Mathematics - Statistics & Probability by Hodder Education GroupISBN: 9781471805837Publication Date: 2014Mastering Mathematics provides flexible online and print teaching and learning resources. The service focuses on strands within the curriculum to improve progression throughout Secondary Mathematics.Mastering Mathematics Student Books and eBooks are organised into progression strands in line with Mastering Mathematics Teaching and Learning Resources:- Enable students to identify appropriate remediation or extension steps they need in order to progress, through easy to follow progression charts- Clear explanations of the tools needed for the chapter followed by questions that develop fluency, reasoning and problem-solving in order to ensure transferability of skills - Show band of difficulty for each chapter and links with other areas of maths throughout the books so students know how they are doing and what they need to learn next
- Statistics by Barbara Illowsky; Susan Dean; Linda Gann (Reviewed by); Wendy Martinez (Reviewed by); Alexander Teich (Reviewed by); Amanda Yowell (Reviewed by)ISBN: 9781951693220Publication Date: 2020This Statistics resource was developed under the guidance and support of experienced high school teachers and subject matter experts. It is presented here in multiple formats: PDF, online, and low-cost print. Statistics offers instruction in grade-level appropriate concepts and skills in a logical, engaging progression that begins with sampling and data and covers topics such as probability, random variables, the normal distribution, and hypothesis testing. This content was developed with students in mind, incorporating statistics labs, worked exercises, and additional opportunities for assessment that incorporate real-world statistical applications. For instructors, resources are available to support the implementation of the Statistics textbook, including a Getting Started Guide, direct instruction presentations, and a solutions manual.

- Advanced High School Statistics by David Diez, Christopher Barr, Mine Çetinkaya-Rundel & Leah DorazioPublication Date: 2019Readers will take away three ideas from this book in addition to forming a foundation of statistical thinking and methods. (1) Statistics is an applied field with a wide range of practical applications. (2) You don't have to be a math guru to learn from real, interesting data. (3) Data are messy, and statistical tools are imperfect. But, when you understand the strengths and weaknesses of these tools, you can use them to learn about the real world.

- Statistics and probability [Years 5-8] TIMES Module, (Australian Mathematical Sciences Institute, n.d.)"Each module contains a discussion of a component of the mathematics curriculum... answers are given at the end of the module and often screencasts giving a solution are linked." (Australian Mathematical Sciences Institute, n.d.)"The Improving Mathematics Education in Schools (TIMES) project was funded by the Australian Government. The modules cover all areas of the Australian Curriculum: Number and Algebra; Measurement and Geometry; Statistics and Probability." "AMSI is the collaborative enterprise of Australia’s mathematical sciences... The common aim we share with our partners is the radical improvement of levels of mathematical capacity and facility in the Australian community." (ASMI, n.d.)
