I believe in learning through making, discovery and personal projects. Children learn best when they are invested in what they are learning and discovering for themselves.
This statistics course allows children discover the concepts of statistics. Children learn about bar charts, scatter plots, tables and graphs. The motivation behind these series of lessons is for students to find out which materials are going to be best to use on a space rocket. Students compare different materials using statistic to find the best ones for their rocket (see intro video).
The lessons involve a lot of "learning by doing". The video describes what the child needs to discover or make, then, lets the child learn for themselves. Sometimes a concept is explained in the video and then explored more offline.
