Cutting to the Common Core: Statistics and Probability for High School
Are you looking for help in understanding and implementing the Common Core Standards’ Statistics and Probability for high school? The Center for Mathematics and Science Education, Teaching and Technology is offering two summer workshops on statistics and probability for grades 6-8 and 9-12.
The workshop topics will cover these high school topics:
- Interpreting Categorical and Quantitative Data;
- Focusing on graphing univariate distributions, measuring center and spread of data distributions, identifying outliers, Normal distribution; bivariate distributions – two-way tables for categorical data, fitting function to numerical data with emphasis on linear, quadratic, and exponential models, correlation and causation;
- Making Inferences and Justifying Conclusions;
- Using simulation to determine the suitability of a specified model, randomization tests for medians, means, and proportions, making inferences and justifying conclusions from sample surveys, observational studies, and experiments;
- Conditional Probability and Rules of Probability (non-Stem topics).
Receive a copy of Making Sense of Statistical Studies, a publication of 15 classroom-ready activities on surveys, observational studies, and experiment including lots of resources and classroom-ready activities.
NOTE: The high school workshop requires that participants have a working knowledge of the Common Core Standards in Statistics and Probability for grades 6-8, e.g., the GAISE model, measures of center (median, mean) and spread (IQR, MAD) of a data distribution, the Law of Large Numbers, the use of simulation to develop sampling distributions and applications to informal inference for a mean and proportion, bivariate numerical and categorical data analysis. If you feel you need more professional development in these areas, please consider registering for Cutting to the Common Core: Statistics and Probability for Grades 6-8. For those interested in registering for both workshops, a discount will be applied to the registration fee.
Location: All summer sessions run from 8:30 am until 3:30 pm and are held on the campus of John Carroll University.
Cost: The cost for the 2 day workshop and all materials is $195 per person. Lunch Included. Early registration is encouraged.
Discounted Registration: For those wishing to participate in this High School workshop AND the Cutting to the Common Core: Statistics and Probability for Grades 6-8 will only pay $350 for both courses.
Non-degree graduate credit (optional): 1 credit hour @ $160 per hour. More information on graduate credit will be offered on the first day of the course.
