We all know that many countries have increased the expectations for learning statistical ideas, and AP Statistics enrollment in the US is on the rise! One of the key ideas in statistics is learning to make inferences based on data. We also know that many college-level courses, including introductory statistics and many other science and social science courses, have an intended learning outcome to improve students’ ability to use inferential reasoning.
The PLACE is offering a FREE online professional development course that can increase teachers’ confidence and provide many classroom ideas and resources related to Teaching Statistics Through Inferential Reasoning led by Dr. Hollylynne Lee. The course includes video discussions with experts such as Chris Franklin, Roger Woodard, Maryann Huey, Doug Tyson, Stephen Miller, and Kaycie Maddox as well as many classroom videos of students and teachers engaged in inferential reasoning. Information in the course is accessible and appropriate for educators in middle school through college-level.
