ASA Statistics Workshop for Mathematics and Science Teachers

Sponsored by the American Statistical Association and based on the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics and Guidelines for Assessment and Instruction in Statistics Education (GAISE): A Pre-K–12 Curriculum Framework, MWM is for middle- and high-school mathematics and science teachers who want to improve their statistics teaching within the Common Core and Next Generation Science Standards through conceptual understanding, active learning, real-world data applications, and appropriate use of technology. Teams from the same school are especially encouraged to attend.

Teachers will explore problems that require them to formulate questions and collect, organize, analyze, and draw conclusions from data. They also will apply basic concepts of probability and explore informal and formal formative assessments.
