Beyond Bare Statistics

  • Michael J. ReissEmail author
Part of the Contemporary Trends and Issues in Science Education book series (CTISE, volume 48)


Much of the science and religion debate has focussed on statistics. The chapters in this section go beyond bare statistics by examining more nuanced studies of science, religion and education with the aim of developing a deeper understanding of the issues at play when attempting to deal with the issues of science and religion in the classroom.
