Option 1 All-Day : 9:00 am- 12:00 pm, 1:00pm - 4:00pm (with breaks for lunch and snacks)
Integration of Statistics into Science Classrooms – for all science, math, and statistics teachers
This workshop provides teachers an opportunity to discuss and apply the data and statistical concepts embodied in the American Statistical Association’s (ASA) Pre-K-12 Guidelines for Assessment and Instruction in Statistics Education II (GAISE II) Framework, the NCTM’s Catalyzing Change: Initiating Critical Conversations for High School Mathematics, and the VA School Level Statistics Standards. Teachers will work collaboratively to examine scientific data from a statistical point of view, study ways to assess student understanding of statistical concepts and explore problems that require them to formulate statistical investigative questions, collect/consider data, analyze data, and interpret data. Investigations from the Pre-K-12 GAISE II will be explored along with other ASA and NCTM resources. This statistics and data science program highlights the necessity for our students to become data savvy and how the ultimate goal of statistical literacy for all must be developed at the school level.
Facilitator: Christine (Chris) Franklin
Capacity = 40 teachers
Option 2 Morning Session: 9:00am – 12:00pm
Computational thinking in physics and chemistry
The purpose of this workshop for physics and chemistry teachers is to demonstrate how to integrate “computational thinking” into chemistry and physics education and use computers and programs to solve problems in physics and chemistry. Participants will engage in interactive activities to learn how to construct module-style problems in physics and chemistry that help students learn scientific concepts and basic programming skills simultaneously.
