The Statistics drawer was written by a team from the Faculty of Education at the University of Tasmania and the Mathematical Association of South Australia, led by Prof. Jane Watson, University of Tasmania.

The Statistics drawer is an outcome both of the extensive research carried out in statistics education at the school level over the past 20 years by Watson and her colleagues, and of the professional learning related to statistics provided to teachers by Watson, Fitzallen, and Carter.

Prof. Jane Watson was responsible for the conceptual design of the drawer and and wrote much of the material, including the Big Ideas. She was assisted by Dr Noleine Fitzallen, University of Tasmania, and Dr. Pauline Carter, Mathematical Association of South Australia.
