Data Session 10, Grades 6-8
 

In the previous sessions, we explored statistics as a problem-solving process that seeks answers to questions through data. You put yourself in the position of a mathematics learner, both to analyze your individual approach to solving problems and to get some insights into your own conception of statistical reasoning. It may have been difficult to separate your thinking as a mathematics learner from your thinking as a mathematics teacher. Not surprisingly, this is often the case. In this session, however, we shift the focus to your own classroom and to the approaches your students might take to mathematical tasks involving statistics. Note 1

In This Grade:

Part A:

Statistics as a Problem-Solving Process

Part B:

Developing Statistical Reasoning

Part C:

Inferences and Predictions

Part D:

Examining Children's Reasoning

Homework

 

As in other sessions, you will be prompted to view short video segments throughout the session; you may also choose to watch the full-length video for this session.
