Meeting Within a Meeting (MWM)
Statistics Workshop for Mathematics and Science Teachers
Sponsored by the American Statistical Association (ASA)
|Dates:||Tuesday, August 2 and Wednesday, August 3, 2016, 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.|
|Place:||Chicago, Illinois, McCormick Place or nearby hotel (workshop meeting room TBD)|
|Audience:||Middle and High School Mathematics and Science Teachers. Multiple mathematics/science teachers from the same school are especially encouraged to attend.|
|Objectives:||Enhance understanding and teaching of statistics within the mathematics/science curriculum through conceptual understanding, active learning, real-world data applications, and appropriate technology|
|Content:||Teachers will explore problems that require them to formulate questions, collect, organize, analyze, and draw conclusions from data and apply basic concepts of probability. The MWM program will include examining what students can be expected to do at the most basic level of understanding and what can be expected of them as their skills develop and their experience broadens. Content is consistent with Common Core standards, GAISE recommendations, and NCTM Principles and Standards for School Mathematics.|
|Presenters:||GAISE Report authors and prominent statistics educators|
Middle school and high school statistics sessions
Activity-based sessions, including lesson plan development
Certificate of participation from the ASA certifying professional development hours
Optional graduate credit available
|Cost:||The course fee for the two days is $50. Please note: Course attendees do not need to register for the Joint Statistical Meetings* to participate in this workshop.|

*The Joint Statistical Meetings are the largest annual gathering of statisticians, where thousands from around the world meet to share advances in statistical knowledge. The JSM activities include statistics education sessions, posters sessions, and the exhibit hall.
The MWM program provides middle- and high-school mathematics and science teachers an opportunity to discuss and apply the data analysis and statistical concepts embodied in the Common Core Standards for Mathematics (CCSSM) and Guidelines for Assessment and Instruction in Statistics Education (GAISE) Pre-K-12 Curriculum Framework.
Teachers will examine the Mathematical Practices of the CCSSM from a statistical point of view and study ways to assess student understanding of statistical concepts. They will explore problems that require them to formulate statistical questions and collect, organize, analyze, and draw conclusions from data.
The MWM program includes examining what students can be expected to do at the most basic level of understanding data analysis and what can be expected of them as their skills develop and experience broadens.
