Professional Development on CODAP   Leave a comment

Dear Colleagues,

We are planning a Zoom group discussion on Thursday, March 4 at 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time. Our special guests are Hollylynne Lee (Director), Gemma Mojica (Co-director), Emily Thrasher and Greg Ray who are part of the Hub for Innovation and Research in Statistics Education group of Statistics Education (HI-RiSE) which is a group of statistics teacher educators, curriculum developers, and researchers from NC State University that conduct multiple projects to help support the teaching and learning of statistics and data science. They will be presenting on Investigating Real, Multivariate Data with CODAP.


Get ready to learn about what you can do in your classrooms to help excite and motivate your students to learn with and from data. They will engage us in data and statistics tasks that promote reasoning and problem solving using real multivariate datasets with a free online data visualization and analysis tool, CODAP. Free, online resources will be shared. Joining from a laptop or tablet will be best for this session.

We are going to use the Zoom registration for the RSVP for this meet-up.  Please click on the link below to register and Zoom will automatically send you the access info.

Statistical Professional Development (Statistics)   Leave a comment

Dear Colleagues,

We are planning a Zoom group discussion on Thursday, February 4 at 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time. Our special guest will be Allan Rossman who will be talking about the importance of ‘Asking Good Questions: Why waste words?’ These three words are the take-home message. In fact, those three words comprise Allan’s entire teaching philosophy and his advice for effective teaching. This presentation will take longer than three seconds because he will provide two examples that connect statistics and probability to other aspects of a secondary mathematics curriculum. The Q&A session will allow for consideration of competing viewpoints, in case anyone wants to argue in favor of asking bad questions or not asking questions at all.  🙂  We are excited to have Allan, a former AP Statistics Chief Reader join us.

We are going to use the Zoom registration for the RSVP for this meet-up.  Please click on the link below to register and Zoom will automatically send you the access info.
