What people are saying about StatsLC resources

Like the dragons themselves and their names. — St Theresa's School student

From what I can see as I observe the students, they are always talking to each other and helping each other out so there is a lot of dialogue going on. Connections is quite interactive. There is a need for them to focus intensively as there are a lot of categories involved. They are always comparing variables using statistical vocabulary. — Kalala Raeli, Dargaville Intermediate School

Dragonistics is cool. It was fun sorting them with their different attributes and stuff — Kaitao Middle School student

This video is so helpful!! our prof showed us this in class :) thank you ! — Fatima Al

I got a positive response from my students that they were finding the videos and notes for the Internals very helpful. We will certainly use the quizzes etc for our revision for the final exams next term. — Dunedin high school teacher

StatsLC has been a fantastic resource for our students. The material is engaging and also the most up to date of any other resource we use for teaching NCEA L3 Statistics. The boys love doing the quizzes which give clues and comments if they need help and they really enjoy the videos. The written material (especially on 'newer' concepts such as triangular and uniform distributions) is really helpful to both teachers and students.
We also use the videos for our Level 1 and Level 2 NCEA students which enjoy and get good understanding from. They make what can be a difficult topic to teach properly, so much easier to understand with simple and fun everyday examples to get points across. — Wellington high school teacher

Thanks a lot. This actually helped. :D — Hivi Amungama

This video is very helpful for anyone starting to do quantitative research. — Mahmoud alsaidi

Like how [The Dragon Games] is about luck and also about strategy. — St Theresa's School student

Thank you so much. You just saved me for my upcoming stats exam. — Tina Hii

Very very clear explanation..love your job! Kia Ora from the Philippines!!! — pyre17

Great video!!! I understand it now! C = .95 — David Keane

Great resource, eye catching graphics that the boys were drawn too. — Carmen Quinnell, Hawera Intermediate School

My class (especially the boys) are LOVING this game. The graphics are amazing and the children are having fun and not even realising that they are actually learning. They love battling each other and trying to collect as many dinosaurs as possible. I have found it hard to find games that the children really enjoy, but this has got to be the best so far. Highly recommend !!!! — Julie, Year 3 teacher

I have a year two student who has been struggling with reading, general engagement and math. All of my children have loved the dragon cards but she has adored it. She will sit next to me and I pretend to be too busy to be able to read the sheets or cards, she figures it out and gets really deep in the investigation. She has been teaching other children and asking them really good leading questions. I hear the children saying things like with 25 cards my results were..., what if we had 25 other cards or 50 cards etc
It is so exciting! — New Plymouth primary school teacher

Fantastic game, builds solid knowledge and is riveting at the same time. The children loved the game and begged me to play it again the following days. For a resource to be so well loved and liked in a short period of time is fantastic. — Lee Hudson, St Joseph's Morrinsville

I highly recommend this video. Thank you so much for this simple 4-minute video explaining confidence intervals. Your example was simple and clear, and you explanation was logical, coherent and straightforward. I tried several other sites to learn about this, including Khan Academy, and they were very confusing, and all over the place. Great job! — Jim Hesson

Thank you so much for the video it was so helpful — Deween Lojitha

I just wanted to thank you for all the videos. They're all very informative and easy to grasp. — Ameen Ali

I was really impressed with the detail and quality of the cards when I unwrapped them. They were easy for the students to become familiar with and work with as we went through the activities. The activities themselves are well planned and lead neatly into the each other, at the same time leading the students further into their exploration of statistics without feeling like it is hard work. — Vicki Hagenaars, Waiouru School

Fantastic game, builds solid knowledge and is riveting at the same time. The children loved the game and begged me to play it again the following days. For a resource to be so well loved and liked in a short period of time is fantastic. — Primary school teacher (7-9 year olds)
