This article reflects back on a previous review of the
Handling Data Cycle (HDC), part of the statistics
section of the National Curriculum programmes of
study for mathematics. It summarises the findings of
the earlier review, considering these in light of recent
experiences in school of a group of trainee secondary
mathematics teachers. In particular, the effect of
there no longer being GCSE statistics coursework is
discussed. With reference to the priorities of different
educational ideological groups, the article supports a
continued emphasis on HDC in our training, despite
indications that it is becoming increasingly marginalised
in the secondary mathematics curriculum.
