1.10, Level 4 Statistical Reasoning with Data Cards – Webinar. Anna Fergusson new

Anna-Marie Fergusson (The University of Auckland) presented a workshop and webinar on Statistical Reasoning with Data Cards  http://www.amstat.org/asa/education/K-12-Statistics-Education-Webinars.aspx.

“Using data cards in the teaching of statistics can be a powerful way to build students’ statistical reasoning. Important understandings related to working with multivariate data, posing statistical questions, recognizing sampling variation and thinking about models can be developed. The use of real-life data cards involves hands-on and visual-based activities.”

Anna’s work using physical data cards and digital technology supports pedagogy required to effectively teach statistical reasoning. This talk presented material from the Meeting Within a Meeting (MWM) Statistics Workshop for Mathematics and Science teachers held at JSM Chicago (2016) which can be used in classrooms to support teaching statistical thinking and reasoning. Key teaching and learning ideas that underpin the activities were also discussed.

    That is great that datacards are getting out there. They are such a wonderful way to get across the concept of population and sample, even at a very young age. We had a Year 2 student saying “My 25 dragons are like this… I wonder what another 25 would look like!” We have been surprised at how successful our simulated data has been at engaging people. For kids, dragons are real!
