MATH 6554 - Data, Probability, and Statistical Reasoning


(3 sem. cr.) Understanding data, probability, and statistics is critical to making sense of the vast amounts of information available in today’s world. Educators taking this course have authentic contexts for collecting, representing, and interpreting data, and they reinforce essential number concepts in promoting students’ ability to think statistically. Middle mathematics teachers focus on using data as a context for developing a variety of mathematical topics and as an important step toward understanding statistical ideas and processes. The goal of this course is to develop educators’ understanding and pedagogical practices so that they can promote their students’ ability to use data, probability, and statistics to better understand real-world issues and to solve a wide range of relevant and engaging problems in many contexts.
