Teaching Introductory Statistics following GAISE and the Common Core, presented by Robert Gould, UCLA, Wednesday, 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. The Guidelines for Assessment and Instruction in Statistics Education (GAISE) were developed by members of the American Statistical Association (which endorses the Guidelines) to assist instructors of Introductory Statistics. The GAISE were integrated to some extent in the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics. The emphasis of the Guidelines on data analysis provides some challenges to mathematics instructors, particularly those relatively new to teaching statistics. In this workshop, we will examine strategically chosen data sets to demonstrate how to use technology to teach fundamental concepts as well as analyze data (Recommendations 2, 3, and 5), and explore the relationship between the GAISE recommendation to emphasize statistical literacy and statistical thinking with the more mathematically minded goals of the Core Curriculum Standards.
This workshop will be held on Wednesday, January 5, the day before the Joint Mathematics Meetings actually begin. There is no cost to participate. For more information and to apply, see www.causeweb.org/workshop.
WeBWorK Consultant Training Session, organized by Jason Aubrey, University of Missouri; Arnold Pizer, University of Rochester; Michael Gage, University of Rochester; Vicki Roth, University of Rochester; and Michael Pearson, MAA; Wednesday, 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. (the day before the JMM actually begins). This one-day session will provide participants with the knowledge and resources necessary to conduct regional WeBWorK Outreach Workshops. For this training session we are recruiting public-spirited instructors who have experience with WeBWorK and who would be interested in helping other mathematics instructors get started with the WeBWorK online homework system. Participation is limited! Some travel funding may be available. For more information and to apply, please see https://jointmathmeetings.pbworks.com/w/page12322327/FrontPage.
