A New Look at Statistics

Discover how to connect your students’ intuitive problem-solving ability to a framework of statistical reasoning: A framework that can be used to problem solve and understand the world, and ignite vital critical thinking when presented with data, whether in the media or at school or at work.  Using an intuitive and visual introduction to concepts, participants will engage in collaborative, fun and engaging in-class activities that can be adapted across the curriculum.
