[Webinar] Statistical Education of Teachers: Novel Curriculum Materials

Monday, October 21, 2019, 4 - 5 PM Eastern Time


Stephanie Casey, Eastern Michigan University

Rick Hudson, University of Southern Indiana

Statistics is more important than ever in today's data-driven world. This is reflected in the increased level of statistics understanding expected of K-12 students according to the CCSS-M and state-level standards. To develop middle and secondary teachers' statistical knowledge for teaching, two projects have created free, research-based curriculum materials to be used with preservice teachers. The ESTEEM project has created online resources, organized into e-modules, with an emphasis on pedagogical content knowledge for teaching statistics. The MODULE(S^2) project has created written curriculum materials meant to be used in the introductory statistics course that preservice secondary teachers take. It emphasizes subject matter knowledge for teaching statistics as well as equity literacy. Both projects utilize CODAP, a dynamic, web-based data analysis tool, in their materials. In this webinar, we will provide an introduction to these materials including examples of statistical tasks and classroom videos from the materials. Alignment of these materials with AMTE's Standards for Preparing Teachers of Mathematics will be highlighted.
