About This Webinar

“What’s Going On In This Graph?” (WGOITGraph?) is what we math-types automatically ask ourselves when we see a graph of interest. But, do our students have this curiosity? Probably not. WGOITGraph?, a weekly, free online feature of the New York Times Learning Network, asks students “What do we notice?” and “What do we wonder?” about a timely graph that they can recognize themselves in. (You may know this as Annie Fetter’s math problem-solving strategy.) WGOITGraph? is for grades 7 – 12 and beyond. It is used in not only math, but also humanities and science class. With a very low floor and very high ceiling, all students engage and benefit.

WGOITGraph? is released weekly on Thursday with math teachers live moderating 9 am – 2 pm ET on the following Wednesday. Then, we reveal the article, additional questions, and Stat Nuggets.

WGOITGraph? can be used in class or as homework. WGOITGraph? expects no teacher prep or statistical background.

We will notice and wonder about some graphs. Then, we will share our catchy headlines. We will discuss best practices. Guaranteed that you’ll still be thinking about the graphs once we are done.

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!
