Sponsored by the Joint Committee of the American Statistical Association and National Council of Teachers of Mathematics

To Be Held Virtually August 10–11, 2022

and virtual learning options

Theme: Igniting Statistics Learning Through
Real-World Data Investigations

 

Co-Chairs: Hollylynne Lee and Gemma Mojica, Hub for Research and Innovation in Statistics Education at the Friday Institute for Educational Innovation, NC State University

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 NCTM Catalyzing Change books and American Statistical Association’s (ASA) 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.

Registration

The workshop is free, though space is limited and advance registration is required. We expect to provide a small stipend for participants of the entire virtual workshop. 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.
