About This Webinar

Variability is everywhere! The answers to so many questions we ask about the world change all around us, so how can we say anything amidst all the changes? Unfortunately, in schools statistics are often treated like a set of procedures to apply to data. Blagh… However, it is possible to engage students with these ideas in a way that helps them struggle with the ubiquitous challenge of variability. In this session I will frame statistical work as modeling variability, discuss different kinds of variability and their implications for learning, and provide examples of how students can engage with variability, invent methods for describing variability, and in the process learn about how statistics tell us things about the world we would not know without them.

Global Math Department webinar platform hosts Conceptual understanding is not enough! Supporting students to see statistics as epistemic tools.
The Global Math Department began as a group of teachers who knew each other through Twitter, math education blogs and Twitter Math Camp. Since 2012 The Global Math Department community has grown into a multi-faceted group of math educators who love to share their ideas related to teaching and learning mathematics. We recognize that as educators we are charged with promoting equity and access within mathematics instruction. In addition, we believe it is crucial that teachers be provided with quality resources and ideas that they can use immediately with their students. Lively and friendly conversations in our weekly webinars encourage all participants to share and continue to grow as educators.
