Workshop Details

Join us for a one-day workshop that will provide direct experience with hands-on and technology-based simulation activities designed to enhance students' conceptual understanding of probability, probability distributions and randomization-based inference. The learning activities involve using manipulatives, calculators (TI-84 and TI-Nspire), freely available applets (StatKey and ISI) and software (Fathom) to explore concepts and analyze real data from genuine research studies and recently released AP Statistics Free-Response questions. We will also discuss implementation and assessment ideas based on our personal classroom experiences. Our goal is to help you make elementary statistical concepts more understandable, meaningful and relevant for your students.
