In general, teaching statistics to sociology and other social sciences students is not an easy task. There are several reasons for that: few students see statistics as a crucial part of their education as social scientists and their future profession, many hold certain prejudices against and misconceptions about statistics, or have a low level of numeracy or other learning issues. Of course, it is not (always?) students that are ‘responsible’ for such a perception of the subject. My job as a teacher of statistics should entail ‘deconstruction’ of those perceptions by making subject more interesting and stimulating, and by raising students’ motivation. In order to achieve such a task, it is necessary to understand students’ perceptions of the subject, which is the focus of the study by Reid and Petocz (2002).
