Abstract

Statistical and geographical literacy is essential for our daily lives. A new web portal for middle school students, published on the federal government statistics website, supports geographic and statistical education by providing age-appropriate online learning activities that teach how to use statistical summaries and their graphic representations. The content of the learning activities is closely related to the National Geography Standards and the Principles and Standards for School Mathematics. On average, the web portal receives 300 visitors per day.
