SC Developing the language of (statistical graphs) shape

Pip Arnold  presented at the 2013 and 2014  joint Auckland Mathematics Association and Department of Statistics (University of Auckland) Statistics Teachers Day.

Pip engages teachers in classroom activities to develop the language of shape used to described statistical graphs. This hands-on workshop is aimed at year 9 & 10 in the NZ Curriculum and focuses on developing an understanding of the different shapes of statistical graphs and using shape and other features to describe graphs. The activities that will be used were refined in the research Pip did for her PhD. View statistical graphs through different eyes.
