Cutting to the Common Core: Statistics and Probability for Grades 6-8
Are you looking for help in understanding and implementing the Common Core Standards’ Statistics and Probability domain in grades 6-8?
Then this workshop is for YOU! Content material and mathematical practice strategies will be modeled. Topics will include:
- The GAISE model that informs the statistical process on which the Sixth grade Standards are based - what is a statistical question, measuring the center of a distribution (median, mean) and the spread of a distribution (IQR and mean absolute deviation);
- The extensive offerings in grade 7 – Random sampling, sampling distribution, measuring the difference of two centers in terms of a measure of variability, informal inference, and probability models;
- The extension to bivariate data for categorical and numerical data and how statistics links to the mathematical topic of developing a line.
Receive a copy of Bridging the Gap between Teaching Statistics and the Common Core State Standards, a publication of 20 statistics and probability activities for the middle grades as well as lots of resources including classroom-ready activities.
Location: All summer sessions run from 8:30 am until 3:30 pm and are held on the campus of John Carroll University.
