Slow Data Collection

May 29, 2018 at 09:00:00 PM · Eastern Time (US & Canada)
About This Webinar

How can we humanize math and talk about the ethics of data collection and analysis authentically with our students? During this webinar, Amanda Riske will discuss how her students collected data over a quarter or semester to allow them to experience data collection methods and learn how to interrogate statistical studies. Through looking at Slow Data Collection, we will explore the question: ‘How can our observations change perspectives and help implement change?’ Participants will delve into how slow data collection projects can develop perspective taking in the math classroom, lead to interdisciplinary projects, open up conversations with students, faculty, parents, and local partners. Participants will consider Amanda’s latest slow data project based on the question: ‘What do we learn from front page news?’ We will examine the planning phases that help students find their voice; ways students can develop a practical plan for their data that prompts action and leading to community involvement.

I am a mother, wife and math teacher. I currently teach at Moravian College in Bethlehem, PA and my favorite class to teach is statistics! This is my 27th year of teaching and I am a Desmos fellow and Desmos certified presenter. @mathteacher24 is my twitter handle and I blog at mathteacher24.blogspot.com. I have several tech related videos for stat and TI-NSpire at www.youtube.com/mathteacher24. Feel free to ask me questions about National Board Certification (renewed in 2015). I also enjoy singing, reading and staying fit using workouts from Beachbody (P90X3/TurboFire/21DFX).
Webinar hosting presenter Amanda Riske
Amanda Riske grew up in the theatre and developed a love for the arts, travel, and mathematics. As an educator, she strives to create contexts for learning that are relevant to current events, social justice topics, develop cultural competencies, and empathy in the math classroom. Amanda taught middle school and high school math in Oslo, Norway, Bonn, Germany, Shanghai, China, and currently, teaches at Georgetown Day School in Washington, DC. During the academic year 2016-17, she was part of a curriculum development team that researched and developed project-based and place-based modules for a traveling boarding international school. Her international teaching experience shaped her view of math as an interdisciplinary subject with opportunities to teach students perspective taking. Amanda will begin her doctoral studies in Learning, Literacies, and Technology at Arizona State University in the fall of 2018 to explore project-based learning as it relates to math education.

We are math teachers who share what we've learned, because we don't want our classes to drain the energy from students. Professional development among friends, not just colleagues. Fun! Immediately useful! Interesting!
