Hi Judy,

I don't have any middle school statistics textbooks to suggest, but I do have
some resources for you to look at that are targeted toward middle school

Key Curriculum has a software called, "Tinkerplots" that I've heard wonderful
things about.  Besides the software Key also has curriculum materials.


Years ago, I used some materials called, "The Quantitative Literacy" Series
to supplement what I was doing for statistics with my 9th graders enrolled in
a General Math/Pre-Algebra class. The series consists of 4 modules.  I've
provided a URL for you to look for a little background info:
http://www.ncrel.org/sdrs/areas/issues/content/cntareas/math/ma6quant.htm .

I took a look at the Dale Seymour Publications site.  It seems the books are
out of print.  BUT you can find them used on Amazon.com and on Abebooks.com.  

I recommend both of these resources--especially if you have to create your
own materials to meet the need of your students.
