Featuring Chris Franklin, ASA K–12 Statistical Ambassador

The MWM program provides middle- and high-school mathematics and science teachers an opportunity to discuss and apply the data analysis, data science, and statistical concepts embodied in the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics Catalyzing Change books and American Statistical Association’s Guidelines for Assessment and Instruction in Statistics Education (GAISE) Pre-K–12 Curriculum Framework.

The program includes examining what students can be expected to do at the most basic level of data analysis understanding and what can be expected of them as their skills develop and experience broadens. Teachers will learn to use strategies and technology tools that support students’ learning and empower them to investigate questions using real-world data.


The workshop is free, though space is limited and advance registration is required. Participants engaged throughout the workshop will also receive a certificate documenting 10 hours of professional learning that may be submitted to their local agency for CEUs. Registration deadline: July 1, 2024.



**Participants will complete about one hour of preparation work before the workshop. All times are in the Eastern Time Zone.
