Statistics Meet Ups   Leave a comment

Dear Colleagues,

Our next K-12 Teacher Chat is Wednesday, April 12 at 4:30pm Eastern time. We are fortunate to have Gemma Mojica and her team from the NC State InSTEP project join us describing resources to support your professional learning about teaching statistics and data. The InSTEP team recently launched a free personalized professional learning platform (instepwithdata.org) to support teachers and instructional coaches in developing expertise in teaching statistics and data science in grades 6-12+. The InSTEP team will share key features and resources from this personalized professional learning platform and engage you in a data investigation with real multivariate data using an online data visualization and analysis tool, CODAP. Joining from a laptop or tablet will be best for this session. We look forward to seeing you at the chat.

You may register at: Meeting Registration – Zoom

You may also view recordings or indicate interest in participating in future meetups and suggest topics or presenters. Other free resources are posted at K-12 Educators (amstat.org).

Additional Announcements:

Also, the latest issue of Statistics Teacher is now available at www.statisticsteacher.org

We are also pleased to announce the following workshops this summer:

Beyond AP Statistics (BAPS) Workshop
June 4, 2023

Meeting Within a Meeting (MWM) Statistics Workshop for Middle- and High-School Mathematics and Science Teachers
Free Online, July 24–25, 2023; Registration ends June 30, 2023

Additionally, April is Mathematics and Statistics Awareness Month, and the ASA GivesBack leadership team would love to host a virtual career panel discussion for your class!  Our leaders come from a variety of backgrounds, all with connections to mathematics and/or statistics, and we are interesting in sharing the stories of our career paths with your students.  This would be an opportunity for students who might be interested in pursuing mathematics/statistics to ask questions to early career professionals about navigating college, choosing a career, etc. There will also be discussions around the importance for everyone to be statistically literate, regardless of career path.

If you are interested, please fill out the form below with your contact information and your class’ availability, and we will do our best to accommodate your schedule:

Dear NCTM Affiliate President or Faculty Advisor,

I am reaching out to you as a member of MET, the Mathematics Education Trust of NCTM.  I want to bring to your attention the many grants and scholarships available with hopes that you will share this information with your members and organization. MET annually awards more than $150,000 to teachers, schools, and organizations through more than 30 different grants addressing a range of needs such as professional development, coursework, research, and conference attendance.  The current round of funding begins February 1 and will close May 1.

Knowing that attachments can be problematic, I will follow this email with a second email that will have the following attachments: 

#1 – A complete list of grants and scholarships and awards to distribute electronically or in person.  This double-sided handout has a mountain of information about MET grants for your members and organization!

#2 – Announcements (ads) to place in any print or electronic communication with membership 

#3 – A powerpoint slide which can be used as needed during meetings or conferences 

#4 – A sign for use at a conference booth to encourage participants to talk to you about grants and pick up the handout noted above (#1).

Our website has additional information you might find useful. 

If you do not receive the second email with attachments, please contact me.

Also, if you are no longer the current affiliate president or faculty advisor, please forward the two emails to the current president or advisor. 

Laurie Boswell

MET Board Member
