The concept of sustainability is viewed as spirally shaped, it continues to grow and expand upon its original meaning of remaining and continuing. The variation theory of learning has been adopted to explain teaching statistics for sustainability. The concern is the generative learning that continue and prepare for the future. For this to occur, a focus on variation thoughts in teaching and learning statistics is a necessary condition for all grades and levels. To teach variation in a powerful way, students’ awareness levels should be considered in regard to instruction and assessment. Dynamic visual tools are significant for helping students see variation . Also, Statistics has to be taught not as isolated discipline but rather within a context of complex real life issues.
