August 7 & 8, 2017

Distinguished Speaker Series – Making Statistical Connections

The California Common Core Mathematics Content Standards have incorporated statistics and probability standards in grades 6-12. The California Mathematics Project (CMP), in partnership with the California Mathematics Council (CMC), and the California Association of Mathematics Teacher Educators (CAMTE) has developed a series of modules for grades 6-12 teachers to support the teaching and learning of statistics and probability.

This two-day workshop will take a close look at the modules, instructional guides for educators, and the materials available for use with teachers focusing specifically on grades 6-12. Presenters will begin by introducing the GAISE (Guidelines for Assessment and Instruction in Statistics Education) Framework and provide opportunities for teachers to experience the progressions of statistics and probability standards in middle school through high school. All activities are interactive, modeling teaching and learning strategies for students.The workshop incorporates technology and ELD strategies in order to address 21st-century learning needs.

When: August 7th & 8th, 2017, 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.

Where: Pleasant Hill Community Center, 147 Gregory Lane, Pleasant Hill, CA 94523
