Catch the Excitement of Statistics at Annual Math Teachers Meeting
April 5, 2017
The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics’ Annual Meeting and Exposition is tomorrow, and we have our pencils sharpened and our calculators ready. If you’re there, be sure to drop by the ASA booth and talk with us!
At this event, thousands of mathematics and statistics education peers, from pre-K educators to administrators, come together to exchange ideas, engage with innovation in the field, and discover new learning practices that will drive student success.
Mathematics, statistics, and data science go hand-in-hand, and we were thrilled to see a number of sessions at this year’s event focusing on statistics-related topics:
MOOC-Eds: Free Online Professional Development on Your Schedule (72)
Strategic Use of Technology Tools for Statistics in High School Math Courses (127)
Analyzing Variation Can Help Us to Make Estimates and Decisions: It’s More Than Just a Random Thing (264)
A New Approach to On-Level Statistics: Statistics and Probability with Applications (422.6)
