Limited Capacity seats available

Experience two engaging statistics lessons aligned to the CCSS for 6th and 7th grade!

Explore your "Name Scores," as you calculate the value of your ‘scrabble” name score and then line up in order of the value. In the lineup, statistical concepts related to center and spread will be discussed and illustrated. Two hands-on activities that give meaning to the “mean” and "quartiles" will also be demonstrated.

Then, dive into the "Fish Population" activity, performing a simulation that estimates the number of fish in the a lake. Concepts of sampling and proportional reasoning are central to this problem.

Connections to Webb’s Depth of Knowledge, the Common Core Standards, the Mathematical Practices and strategies to engage all learners (especially ELLs and special learners) will be made explicit. You'll acquire a clearer understanding of what good statistic lessons look and feel like in middle school in the Common Core - and with classroom-tested, ready-to-use lessons that will engage students.
