1.12, Level 5 A Models and Modelling approach – Anne Patel new

Anne Patel (CensusAtSchool and University of Auckland).

This workshop presented part of Anne’s PhD research using MEAs (Model Eliciting Activity) to develop students’ understanding of the power of models and modelling. A modelling approach can strengthen students reasoning about statistical and chance ideas. Anne designed an MEA and Follow Up Tasks (FUTs) which requires students to build a model and reason about underlying randomness in data. Teachers experienced and discussed pedagogy that reconnects data and chance learning experiences. The tasks were designed for Year 7-8 students but are suitable for Year 9-10. If you would like Professional development regarding a modelling approach please contact Anne:
