Abstract

Many community organisations maintain historical and other records and files that are potentiallyof interest to the wider community, including schools. They may lack the expertise, however, to makethis knowledge available in suitable statistical formats. In this project a local group researched thehistory of 165 World War 1 servicemen. In addition to a published book, the data were used to createa spreadsheet that could be used by schools, and a website accessible to the general public. A localschool investigated the data using Tinkerplots. Students were highly engaged and motivated by areal dataset that they could relate to through family connections. This case study paper providessuggestions for community organisations and statistics educators about working together forsuccessful outcomes.
