Helen Teal (Whangarei Girls’ High School) gave an insight into what Whangarei Girls’ High School are trialling in order to make stats more awesome and how they are moving towards more student centred learning practices in Mathematics and Statistics. This workshop will cover how they are producing students who love learning and feel confident about stats – even those with lower abilities. You will see examples of strategies and tools they are trialling such as threading Number throughout their course as well as using big, problem solving tasks to make stats more engaging, relevant and more like what they will encounter in real life or Level 1 NCEA. You will also see rubrics they have developed to assess each curriculum level as well as to assess deeper thinking for each assessment task. Although the focus will be on Statistics, this workshop will also include other aspects of the Mathematics curriculum, as well as how these practices are also proving successful in the senior school.
